Techniques new to this Vintage Kinda Girl

Quilt as you Go or QAYG isn't new in the quilting world. But, it's new to this girl. It's oddly satisfying to watch the quilt take form in only one step. Piecing and basic quilting happen together but that doesn't mean you have to stop there. You can perform more Free Motion Quilting during or after the quilt is complete. Here is a picture of a pillow I recently completed using this method as learned from a class I watched on Craftsy.com.
It was called Fast and Furious Quilt as you Go with Pre-Cuts. The teacher, Gudrun Erla, was an amazing instructor and her projects were creative and fun. Classes expose you to new things and sometimes you try techniques that spark your creativity. That's what I love about working with fabric and thread. Next up? Wait and see!
