Quilt as You Go Made Modern

Quilt As-You-Go Made Modern
Jera Brandvig
Stash Books; $21.95

Those of us who have been quilting for several decades may remember the original quilt-as-you-go method taught by Georgia Bonesteel. I still have the my book from the 1970s and made a few quilts using this method. Jera Bradnvig has taken the concept and updated it for the modern quilter, allowing creativity to shine in design. Blocks are fully quilted on batting, which she refers to as your canvas, and then joined together, with or without a sashing strip. To finish the quilt, she adds a backing along with minimal quilting along the seams. The book includes 12 projects to serve as starting off points. A good choice for someone interested in a quick method to finish quilts.

You can look for the book at your favorite quilt shop or book retailer. Here’s a link to Amazon if you would like to learn more about the book.
