If you have ever seen this quilt or the pattern, the blocks are all sewed together with no sashing or boarders. Just beautiful blocks build upon beautiful block. I have longed to quilt this quilt from the moment I laid eyes on it. All those fun geometric shapes and the endless possibilities. Because the quilt is 84 by 96 when completed I'm thinking it may be more than I want to tackle on my domestic machine as far as quilting. So the question popped into my head, would this quilt make a good quilt as you go project. I could:
1) quilt each individual block and attach all the blocks with binding strips (white maybe?)
2) piece each section then quilt it and attach the sections with binding strips (again white?)
My biggest fear is changing the look of the quilt with the binding strips. Would it change the look too much to have small sashings in the quilt? Plus I have not make a QAYG quilt using this method before.
This is what the quilt looks like once it is pieced together. What is your thoughts on turning this beauty into a quilt-as-you-go project? Have you ever constructed a quilt using the binding strip method? I would love to hear your thoughts. I have plenty of time...only 40 more blocks to go!
