Quilt-as-you-go Crib Quilt

Hi there, so can you tell my favorite color is royal blue and that I love peacocks lol! 😉 So I know the title says crib quilt, which is the actual size of this. However, this is just a sample I made for a class I’m teaching. I’m actually going to be making a queen sized quilt like this for my bed. Except, instead of having diagonal pieces I’m going to make a striped quilt that has all pieces parallel to one another. I think that will look a little better than this one.

Anyway, so a while back I blogged about some quilt-as-you-go placemats I made for my table. Well This is the same technique just incorporated into a stripy quilt.

For those of you who haven’t tried this technique in quilting before, you definitely should. It cuts the time literally in half, which makes quilting so much more fun, well to me it does. It’s really a great technique, you don’t have to worry about puckering, and bunching, etc. and by the time your done adding all the pieces to your quilt, all you have to do is add the binding and your done! Ha I Love it!!

I’ll be starting on my quilt for my bed soon, in which I’ll give you updates for that. So until then, I hope you have a marvelous Memorial Day weekend. I know I will be, lots of fun family time to look forward.

Thanks for reading,
Christina
