getting it together

well, I almost have this quilt finished.  Quilting by the square (I love this method)  I did the squares in 3 panels.  I will machine quilt the dark pink batik with a clear momofilament thread before I sew the sashing on them, joining the quilt.  Then all I lack is the outside border and binding, how cool is that.  This is a great method for people who want to machine quilt their quilt and not have to move all that fabric around.  I will definitely make more using this method. 

I made a "hand quilted" quilt as you go quilt a few years back.  I'll take a picture for my blog.  I loved that too.....

  1. Lovely! I have used this method in the past and it works well, but now I'm just putting the whole top together and then quilting it on my domestic sewing machine. Both methods are good, but the quilting isn't my favorite part no matter which way I do it. I guess getting it finished is my favorite part. Hee Hee!
