Size Matters – Quilt As You Go Makes it Easier

For far too long I limited myself to quilting small quilts and mug rugs by using the excuse that anything larger would be too hard to quilt because I didn’t have a long arm quilting machine. You know, there’s that easy excuse about things being too bulky to fit a large quilt under the needle of a normal sewing machine. The excuse worked for a while until I discovered “quilt as you go” and realized there’s a way to quilt a larger quilt on a small machine.

I Googled a few YouTube videos on “quilt as you go” and then, as usual, decided to do it my own way working off their ideas and suggestions. The result of my first quilt as you go project was “Cup Size Matters” and it turned out so well that I was commissioned to create a second one. I’m designing it now.

Here is my first “quilt as you go” project, “Cup Size Matters”.
