How to quilt as you go: learn how now (+ giveaway!)

You know the feeling: you’re thrilled to have completed your latest quilt top. Pat yourself on the back!

You feel accomplished. Proud. Done.

But you’re not. There’s still all that quilting to do…

From Learn to Quilt-As-You-Go

We’ve all felt that tinge of disappointment: excited about the piecing, not so much about the quilting. So how would it feel to complete the piecing of your next quilt—and finish the quilting at the same time?

You’ll find out exactly how it feels when you try a project from the new book Learn to Quilt-As-You-Go. (Spoiler alert: it feels grrreat!)

Whether you lack the time to do the quilting—or simply don’t have the patience—Gudrun Erla’s quilt-as-you-go technique will make your piecing and your quilting tie for first place at the finish line every time. Start with simple squares and rectangles to learn the ropes. Then build on the basics with techniques for triangles, strips, prairie points, and even curves.

Today we’re excited to have Gudrun as a guest writer to tell you more about her new book and her rewarding technique. Welcome, Gudrun!


Gudrun ErlaI am thrilled to be introducing you to my first book published by Martingale. I’ve been publishing books myself since 2004, so many of you may be familiar with my GE Designs brand of books. But this collaboration, with the wonderful lineup of talented individuals at Martingale, was a joyful process for me. I’m very excited about the result.

My journey with the quilt-as-you-go method started with my first published pattern, called the “Braid Runner.” I got into the method mainly because of a lack of time. I loved the idea of piecing and quilting your project at the same time. When you’re done piecing, all you have to do is add the binding and you’re done.

Ever since that first pattern, I’ve been asked for more and more quilt-as-you-go patterns. Once quilters try this method, they can’t seem to get enough.

In Learn to Quilt-As-You-Go, I take you through the techniques I’ve developed, starting with the simplest projects any beginner could embark on. Then, step by step, I introduce more challenging techniques.

There are 14 projects in Learn to Quilt-As-You-Go, starting with straight-line quilt-as-you-go projects.

Let's Dish place mats
Beginner project: “Let’s Dish” place mats

Once the basics are mastered, you can add interest with triangles:

Winging It table runner
“Winging It” table runner

Dimensional elements:

Lucky Charms topper
“Lucky Charms” topper

Appliqué:

Spring Bouquet wall hanging
“Spring Bouquet” wall hanging

And the illusion of curves:

Petal Play topper
“Petal Play” topper

You’ll also learn a technique I call “sewing by numbers.”

How-to photo from Learn to Quilt-As-You-GoLearn to Quilt-As-You-Go is a primer for quilters who have never done any quilt-as-you-go projects. It’s beautifully illustrated, with helpful photographs of techniques. And even if you’re familiar with my previous quilt-as-you-go patterns and books, you’ll want Learn to Quilt-As-You-Go as a reference for all your quilt-as-you-go questions. I hope you’ll join me and give Learn to Quilt-As-You-Go a go!

  • I have never done any "quilt as you go". I love learning new techniques and am always buying books that show new ways to do things. I think this would be a fantastic technique to learn.

    —Cyndi on June 16, 2015
  • I myself have not tried this process yet but my sister did a mystery quilt that was a QAYG and it was lovely!!

    —Lori Chvojka on June 16, 2015
  • The only quilt-as-you-go pattern I’ve ever tried is Gudrun’s "Braid Runner" and it was nice to be finished quilting! I can’t wait to get a copy of her new book and try more of her techniques!

    —Deb G in VA on June 16, 2015
  • I have not tried it yet, but it’s on my list, along with many other projects! Sound familiar? I’d love to try and the projects displayed look like a lot of fun. I’d love a chance to have her ebook.

    —kraftykc on June 16, 2015
  • I’ve always wanted to try this method but was not sure of how to start or stop, let alone put the blocks together

    Donna Davies on June 16, 2015
  • I learned the Quilt-As-You-Go method when Georgia Bonesteel had a TV program. It surely is a faster way to complete a quilt than trying to quilt the whole quilt on your domestic sewing machine.

    This book will be a great idea for new quilters – encourages them to complete their projects.

    —Diane Mettler on June 16, 2015
  • I made a reversible "quilt as you go" table runner for my daughter-in-law, and I loved the technique. It is great to be almost done (just have to put on the binding) when the piecing is finished!

    —B J Kinney on June 16, 2015
  • Well, I certainly qualify to try this, as I never seem to have enough time to finish my quilting projects! I’d love to try ‘quilt as you go’.

    —Lynda McNab on June 16, 2015
  • Love it!

    —Teresa Hennes on June 16, 2015
  • I have done 2 quilt-as-you-go and liked the technique, especially because of the constraint. I haven’t seen any newer designs except the braided one so Gudrun’s book is exciting. I would love to try several of her designs using this technique.

    —Janey on June 16, 2015
  • I have a pattern for a "quilt as you go" placemat that I have used several times. It’s a marvelous time saver and looks so professional when finished.

    —Anne Welker on June 16, 2015
  • I have never done quilt as you go, but I’d love to learn it. There is a pattern for round place mats in this book that my daughter would call "awesome" if I made them for her. What fun it would be to give this a try.

    —Robyn on June 16, 2015
  • I love this technique–it looks great and works well for smaller things.

    —Grace S. on June 16, 2015
  • The quilt as you go method seems like a wonderful idea! I think it would definitely help me finish some of those smaller projects that I wouldn’t want to quilt later on my regular machine…definitely on my "must learn to do" list.

    —Julie on June 16, 2015
  • I have done some "quilt as you go" on small pieces, and it was fun. However, the joining of larger pieces has kept me from trying a larger project.

    —C Bourque on June 16, 2015
  • I have used quilt as you go making my favorite placemat pattern. I took this class many years ago. I really like some of the samples in this new quilt as you go book and would love to learn these new techniques!

    BARBARA BARTHLE on June 16, 2015
  • I’ve made one baby quilt "quilt as you go". I’d love to have some more ideas on how to use this technique.

    —Carol Vickers on June 16, 2015
  • Love Gundrun’s patterns and so happy to hear Martingale has published her latest book. In order to make a huge bed quilt QAYG was the only way I could manage it.
    Fabulous technique. I would love to win this ebook, thank you.

    —Diane H on June 16, 2015
  • I have done the quilt-as-you-go technique a few times in the past. I don’t know why I don’t use it more often–it’s fun and the results are very satisfying.

    —CJ Hines on June 16, 2015
  • Haven’t tried it yet, but am interested in learning the technique. I might have to order the book if I don’t win it. 🙂

    —Sharon Theriault on June 16, 2015
  • I have not yet tried quilt-as-you-go however this might give me the extra motivation to give it a try. The projects look like so much fun to complete.

    —Lisa on June 16, 2015
  • I have not tried the "quilt as you go" technique yet. The patterns in the book are beautiful, I would love to give them a try.

    —Micki on June 16, 2015
  • I tried this one once – it wasn’t very successful, I think it was the method I used. Want to try it again, seems like it would help me actually finish some quilts instead of just finishing the tops.

    —connie b on June 16, 2015
  • I’ve read about the method, but never tried it as I thought there was too much hand-sewing involved. I find hand quilting very tedious.

    —kate on June 16, 2015
  • I haven’t tried it before but would like to because I like to try new things

    —Marthese on June 16, 2015
  • I am retired and I am trying to stretch myself with new things to learn every day!
    I belong to a group of charity quilters out of Stafford, Texas and we try to make our charity quilts different and interesting!
    A quilt as you go quilt would give us new options for different sizes since we make quilts from babies to wheelchair to lap to…….. Whatever is needed!
    Thank you!

    —Anne Jacobs on June 16, 2015
  • I’ve never done quilt as you go, but think it would be an easy way to complete a project.

    —Jane on June 16, 2015
  • haven’t tried this yet. sounds interesting and I like the ideas in the book. Thanks for the giveaway!

    —Pamela on June 16, 2015
  • Have not tried it yet, but would love to!! What a timesaver it would be, besides it looks like a lot of fun!

    Carmen

    Carmen on June 16, 2015
  • And we would not have to wait on our longarmer, we would be able to get our quilts out quicker to those in need!

    —Anne Jacobs on June 16, 2015
  • I am almost done with my first Quilt as You Go project. I would love to do more.

    —Anita Mitchell on June 16, 2015
  • I would love to know how to quilt as you go but have not tried it yet. The patterns in this book all look so fun to do that I am going to have to try it soon.

    —Joyce on June 16, 2015
  • It is on my "to learn" list…so it can go on my "to do" list.

    Barbara Carol Light Nessle on June 16, 2015
  • One of my first quilting projects was quilt as you go placemats! Loved it! Haven’t done anything since. The book had some designs I liked. It would be fun to do a bigger project.

    —Kris on June 16, 2015
  • Many years ago I tried the Georgia Bonesteel method of quilt as you go. I was less than pleased due to the handwork required to finish each seam. I have two of Gudrun’s earlier books, and the process is so much easier and cleaner. I would love to win the new book!

    —Marcia Gilbreath on June 16, 2015
  • I’ve done a reversible quilt as you go and enjoyed it at the time. Would like to learn how to add other elements to that process.

    —Sandra on June 16, 2015
  • have not tried yet but have watched videos the photos look awesome

    —Jo Goodloe on June 16, 2015
  • I am still in the learning stage, have not done all the much in that area. Great idea though.

    —Patricia D. Roberts on June 16, 2015
  • I have tried it and LOVE it quilt as you go projects! I am always looking at new ways to improve or new designs to explore. It’s a great way to use up scraps and just sit back to relax at the sewing machine.

    —Kathy E. on June 16, 2015
  • I am new to quilting so this looks like a great starter book for a novice.

    —Claire Ross on June 16, 2015
  • I’ve done some quilt as you go with straight lines. This looks like a good way to take it further.

    Mary Beth McKelvey on June 16, 2015
  • Well, I have tried on my own, and managed to get it done, but I really wasn’t happy with the results and the way it looked. I really need more instruction especially with quilts

    —Lana Metheny on June 16, 2015
  • Haven’t tried it yet. These projects are fantastic. Would love to get a copy of the book.

    —Anne on June 16, 2015
  • I tried a variation of the method several years ago but was less than pleased with the results, which were, at best, wonky. I have seen other variations since but so far haven’t found any I like. This one appears worth a try. Thanks for the continued inspirations to try new techniques.

    —Jane on June 16, 2015
  • I havent tried it yet, but I’d like to give it a whirl soon!

    Debbie D on June 16, 2015
  • I’ve tried it, but definitely still learning.

    —Nancy Lanier on June 16, 2015
  • I have not tried any quilt as you go – I do like the look that it gives the different blocks. I think it’s connecting the blocks that confuses me and this book would help explain that! Thanks for the chance to win!

    —Jacklynn Grimm on June 16, 2015
  • I fell in love with a package of pre-printed blocks, but putting them all together, then hand-quilting them seemed like a huge project, so I hand-quilted each block separately, and then assembled them in the quilt-as-you-go method…wasn’t too sure if it would look "right", but the final effort won me a best in show at our local country fair. It is a great way to complete a large project – I’d do it again in a heartbeat.

    Gail G on June 16, 2015
  • I haven’t tried quilt-as-you-go by machine, but back in the early days, I tried to do it by hand. Although it was a way of learning the process, I wanted to learn to piece and quilt by machine. Now that there are books to teach machine quilt-as-you go, I will certainly give it a try. It would make great backdrop for machine embroidery.

    —Barbara Bobbitt on June 16, 2015
  • Have just started learning this technique and love it! Would really help to have this book to take me further.

    —Julia Nunn on June 16, 2015
  • I did a quilt as you go ‘many’ years ago. It was not very good. I don’t do any quilting myself anymore. I prefer to just do the ‘tops’. These projects look so great that I am really anxious to try it again with these new techniques. Thanks.

    —Judy D on June 16, 2015
  • Haven’t tried it yet, but really want to! I even took a class on it. Just haven’t got the guts to put the machine to the fabric yet!

    —Diane Wills on June 16, 2015
  • Would like to learn how to quilt as you go. Like the quilts pictured from the book.

    —Becky Lee on June 16, 2015
  • I have not tried this yet but have read a lot about it. However, I’ve only seen the strip version. I had no idea you could do so many shapes and styles in QAYG. Thanks for the opportunity to win this book!

    —Kathleen on June 16, 2015
  • Love quilt-as-you-go. Want to do all my quilts that way!

    —Kay on June 16, 2015
  • I am very interested in quilt as you go but have not done it yet. This would be a very helpful book.

    —Joan on June 16, 2015
  • Haven’t tried it – but I love all these projects and would love to do them

    —Kathy Luehrs on June 16, 2015
  • I have tried a few quilt as you go and like the process on small pieces, but I usually make full size quilts. So far the ones I have seen for that are rather bulky. Hope to see one for a large quilt.

    Rusty on June 16, 2015
  • I remember that back in the 80’s Georgia Bonesteel taught this concept. I have several of her books and videos. That’s where I learned to quilt as you go.

    —Cheryl Buchanan on June 16, 2015
  • Ive been really wanting to try it and would love this book.

    —Robin Johnson on June 16, 2015
  • Have not tried it, but would love to learn how. Always looking for something new and fun to learn, so I can teach the little ladies that take classes at my shop.

    —June on June 16, 2015
  • I haven’t tried it yet but have been saving some scraps to practice with. Would love to win this book!

    —amy on June 16, 2015
  • I have not yet tried "Quilt As You Go", maybe on my bucket list. Thanks for the preview of your book.

    —Rita on June 16, 2015
  • I haven’t tried this method yet….but it looks like a lot of fun!!

    —Marcia Reinoehl on June 16, 2015
  • Did quilt-as-you-go years ago by Georgia Bonesteel books, then learned that I enjoyed hand quilting, but now I’ve got too many unquilted quilt tops, so I need to get back to quilt-as-you-go so that items are virtually finished when the top is done.

    —Pat on June 16, 2015
  • I’ve done a little bit of quilt as you go. I’d love to learn more. Time is always a factor for me so I tend not to start a big project that I know will end up a UFO! Thanks so much for the chance to win 🙂

  • I’ve made smaller projects, but never a larger quilt. Am anxious to try. Love the ideas in the book.

    —gab on June 16, 2015
  • LOVE IT

    —Julie Craven on June 16, 2015
  • I saw some of my quilt Guild members presented their quilt-as-you go quilts, they are so beautiful and stunning, they told me it was easy to make. I really like to learn this new skill, I’m sure this book would be helpful.

    —Christine Pierson on June 16, 2015
  • I have tried one of the QAYG techniques. You had to be cautious of where the edges were so that you didn’t quilt too close to the connecting seams. It was nice not to have to wrestle with bulk until towards the end.

    —Janet T on June 16, 2015
  • I love quilting as I go! With a full time job, it’s gratifying to see the accomplishments I make in a short time span! Not much time for anything else!

    —Karen on June 16, 2015
  • This book contains a very interesting ideas! I can see two that I have to sew !!!

    —Mania on June 16, 2015
  • I am super excited to try this. My stash is threatening to take over my house. Time to fight back.

    —Vicki Krausz on June 16, 2015
  • I have done some QAYG quilt. They’ve been mostly column quilts. I’d love to learn dome new techniques to finish even more wip.

    —Keri Lyn on June 16, 2015
  • I’ve done a few small projects using quilt as you go method and found it to be an easy and fast way to get a project completed.

    —Linda on June 16, 2015
  • I’m a klutz, and although I’ve tried it, I have not mastered it. The only QAYG that I have done was a ticker-tape quilt that I then sewed the squares/blocks (FQ sized) together into a rag quilt. It was incredibly fast, and I would like to learn to do this for other patterns.

    —Susan Burney on June 16, 2015
  • I haven’t found a QAYG method that I felt was successful yet, maybe Gudrun’s will be for me! Her designs are certainly beautiful and I would love to win this book! Thanks for the great giveaway and the opportunity to try and win this book!

    —susan on June 16, 2015
  • I have completed smaller quilt-as-you-go projects. It is very satisfying to be done when the last seam is sewn.

    —marlene on June 16, 2015
  • I made my last Magic Tile quilt as a QAYG. LOVED IT. The quilt went so quickly. As it was his quilt, my grandson was involved in everything from choosing the fabrics to deciding which finished tile went where. He supervised everything!

    —Barbara Amaral on June 16, 2015
  • I’m not sure….I’ve made my quilt blocks, quilted them, then assembled them, with only minimal quilting on the entire quilt. Your book sounds interesting. I would (and always do) enjoy learning new techniques so I can get more projects done.

    —Kathi on June 16, 2015
  • I haven’t tried it but would love to!

    —Janna on June 16, 2015
  • Not really in to it at this time, would be interested in learning this technique.

    —Susan Ross on June 16, 2015
  • I would love to learn this technique.

    —Jo-Anne Cooper on June 16, 2015
  • I’ve never done quilt as you go but have heard of it and think it would be a great idea.

    —Sandy Lowery on June 16, 2015
  • I have not done quilt as you go as I am always confused as to how to put the blocks together after each is quilted. Would love to win this book as she says she has beginner blocks and lessons for this technique.

    —Susan on June 16, 2015
  • Over 30 years ago my mom and I mad some log cabin quilt as you go quilts.
    I had not made any since. I recently saw a tutorial for sewing the blocks together. I decided to give it a try again. I just started the blocks.
    So far so good. Always open to new techniques.Looks like a good book.

    —Sharon B on June 16, 2015
  • I haven’t tried this before but would love to learn!

    —Pam on June 16, 2015
  • I have used one pattern as a quilt-as-you-go project. I enjoyed the process, and have made at least four tablerunners that way. Love being finished piecing and quilting with only the binding to go.

    —Eileen on June 16, 2015
  • I have only made one quilt with the QAYG method. I took a class at a quilting shop and loved the method. I love some of the samples in your book and would love to win the book. Thanks for publishing your book providing more patterns to try.

    —Donnamarie on June 16, 2015
  • What a wonderful idea! Do I need this book!!!!!!

    —theresa sheldon on June 16, 2015
  • Haven’t tried it (yet) but want to as it seems like such a good idea and time saver. These patterns are lovely!

    —Laura B. on June 16, 2015
  • This looks like a technique I should learn. Perhaps I wouldn’t have so many UFO’s. I am eager to take a good look at the book and try this! Perhaps I really could make the Christmas table runners on my "to do" list in time to use them!

    —Nita on June 16, 2015
  • Haven’t tried it, but I would like to!

    —Laura F on June 16, 2015
  • I finished one quilt and it was done using a quilt as you go method – I have 2 others in process – one is the method where you bring all seams forward and fold to create enclosed seams, just can’t think of the name – that quilt I have named the "Never Ending Quilt" because I feel like I will never get it done!!!

    —Martha Morgan on June 16, 2015
  • I’ve never tried it but would love to.

    —MarthaO on June 16, 2015
  • I have done a few quilt-as-you-go projects and have enjoyed each one of them. Such fun to turn over my stitching and see the other side finished!

    —Susan Stanton on June 16, 2015
  • have only done basic quilt as u go projects so would love to try some of the other projects in this book – it is so satisfying to have your quilt pieced and quilted all at once!

    —Karon on June 16, 2015
  • I like the QAYG method when I need a break from traditional projects. I haven’t bought this book yet, but would love it just the same.

    —Karen on June 16, 2015
  • The whole concept is terrific. I haven’t tried it yet but I’m looking forward to learn yet another new quilting idea. Yeah

    —Hildy on June 16, 2015
  • I haven’t tried this technique yet, but sure want to try. I have several tops done that I just cannot finish on my machine and have to contract with someone to finish for me. I would sure love to be able to just put the binding on at the end and be done.

    —Barbara on June 16, 2015
  • I am relatively new to quilting and not very confident of my (multilayer) quilting skills, I also do not have a long arm machine and so tried to muddle my way through my version of quilt as you go. Would love to see the right way to do it!

    —Karen on June 16, 2015

    —Marge P on June 16, 2015
  • I have never done any quilt-as-you-go projects, but it sounds like something I truly would like to try. I am a ‘beginner, so this would be a way for me to be able to actually finish a quilt! I have many books on quilting, but none on this method. Would LOVE to win it!

    —Ann on June 16, 2015
  • Have never done quilt as you go, but from the look of these projects, I’d love to try. I have just begun a little machine quilting; used to do everything by hand… took FOREVER! Would love to give try some of these projects and the techniques on new quilts I start.

    —Donna S. on June 16, 2015
  • Would like to try this, hopefully I win

  • I AM that person, finished the top and stuck not knowing how to quilt!

    —Annette on June 16, 2015
  • I’ve not tried quilt-as-you-go but have been intrigued ever since I saw tutorials in a quilting newsletter about 7 yrs. ago. I would love to try it and love the patterns I’ve seen from this book. Would love to win it!!

    —Diana Salmon on June 16, 2015
  • I have been quilting for years…but as you say the quilting at the end for me is no fun.
    Would love to learn the "New" way to quilt as you go.

    —Beth Lambright on June 16, 2015

    —Audrey on June 16, 2015

    —Bridget on June 16, 2015
  • I have done a quilt as you go project years ago. but I don’t remember how to do it, so your book would be needed. Thanks for the chance to win it!

    —Colleen Gander on June 16, 2015
  • I have not tried QAYG yet, but I really want to! I do have ideas for several projects and the fabric and plans to make a QAYG table runner.

    —Angelia L. on June 16, 2015

    —Cheryl on June 16, 2015
  • I have only done a couple of small quilt as you go projects. Would love to learn more.
    Thanks!

    —Verna on June 16, 2015
  • I have only tried this technique for small items. I have never joined quilter blocks together. Gudrun’s projects are beautiful and way beyond any quilt as you go I’ve done before.

    —Diane S on June 16, 2015
  • Several years ago I was in a small bee making a strip-pieced block made on a sandwich of foundation, batt, and backing. We barely started when our teacher had to move, so of course I never finished. This book would give me a great incentive to complete this project and of course use many of Gudrun’s ideas. Thanks for the chance to win!!

    —Marie Chat on June 16, 2015
  • Haven’t tried it, but I’m intrigued by the idea. I just wonder if it’s as easy as suggested.

    —Sandy W. on June 16, 2015
  • I never have – would love to make some of those projects in the book!

    —Sue J on June 16, 2015

    Debby on June 16, 2015

    —Janie O on June 16, 2015
  • I have not yet tried this technique, but would love to. I really enjoy hand-quilting, but sometimes speed and durability are of the essence.

    —Janet G. on June 16, 2015
  • i would love to have this book. i am now doing a quilt i first do the piecing,then put 2 rows together,then i free-motion. when my rows are together.then i finish with self-binding and i am now done.what a great idea love-to have the book

    —diana wascher on June 16, 2015
  • Not to sound like a complete idiot, but the longest time, I thought "quilt as you go" meant you were carrying the project wherever you went and hand quilted. Now that I know what it really means, I can say that I’ve never tried it but would certainly love to give it more than one or two attempts very soon. Seems like the perfect format for table runners and tree skirts and those are my "go to" gifts.

    —debra lee on June 16, 2015
  • I’ve seen this method done several ways on YouTube . I haven’t tried it, but would love too? Thanks for the giveaway.

    —Doris Mccarty on June 16, 2015

    —carol on June 16, 2015

    —Delaine on June 16, 2015
  • I’ve never tried this technique, but I’d love to learn how. And what lovey projects to make while learning!

    —LCSmith on June 16, 2015
  • I can do blocks and table runners but how do you put them together in a quilt. But I like the done part of it

    —Pam Hancock on June 16, 2015
  • I have always been interested in learning quilt as you go but have been unsure which instruction book I should purchase. I love to quilt by hand but find that I am running out time. My eleven children are graduating faster that I can finish their quilts. I think quilt as you go could be my answer.

    —Loretta on June 16, 2015
  • I tried a basic stripe one and it was so great to be done – when you’re done!Fast and easy

    —Claire on June 16, 2015
  • Although I have been sewing forever, I am new to quilting and have been taking classes from every quilt shop in town and on Craftsy. I would love to learn to quilt as you go. My current projects have been small so they could be quilted on my home sewing maching (I’m still just stitching in the ditch). This would be a great new technique to learn.

    Marcia on June 16, 2015
  • I’ve done some strip quilting, and some jeans quilts that you quilt as you go, and my first quilt books were Georgia Bonesteel’s lap quilting books from the 80’s! I really need to learn some more QAYG techniques, I can’t afford to keep quilting with my credit card (as Eleanor Burns says) and my poor machine needs a good tuneup, she won’t drop her feeddogs 🙂 …
    thanks for your generosity!

    —Marla C. on June 16, 2015

    —Dianne on June 16, 2015
  • I’ve done some small projects quilt as you go, the largest being a lap sized quilt for charity. I have so many small pieces of batting that it seems like a practical idea.

    —Sally on June 16, 2015
  • I did one ‘quilt-as-you-go’ project a few years ago, but I haven’t mastered the technique by any stretch of the imagination! It was a bumpy process, (and so was the finished project ;> ). I must have done something wrong, so I’d like to read Gundrun’s book to see what it was!

    Barb Johnson on June 16, 2015
  • I have tried quilt as you go and I loved it.

    —Virginia Over on June 16, 2015

  • I have not done this technique but will try ti.

    —sonia on June 16, 2015

    —Nancy D on June 16, 2015
  • Have not tried quilt-as-you-go, mainly because I haven’t a clue how to do it!! I think I really NEED this book – no classes anywhere near me 🙁

    Thanks for the opportunity to win a copy of the book!

    —Diane Dashevsky on June 16, 2015
  • I have made a few table runners and a baby quilt using this method. Really liked these projects.

    —Jo Anne on June 16, 2015
  • in all the years I have been quilting, I can honestly say, I have never done a "Quilt as you go" quilt! Would love to try, and would be better yet to be a winner of the book and give it a try…keeping my fingers crossed….or as they say…"Pick Me! Pick Me!"

    —Jeanette S on June 16, 2015
  • In a class I made one wall hanging which was done completely on the machine, block by block with quilting and all. It was fun to do but required a specific pattern. I would love to be able to adapt the process to more designs.

    —Dolores Paynter on June 16, 2015
  • Absolutely love the quilt as you go idea !! The book sounds wonderful !
    Thanks for the opportunity to win!

    —Nancy on June 16, 2015

    —Katy M on June 16, 2015
  • Years ago, and with a two year old daughter on my knee, I used the quilt-as-you-go method to make a puff pillow quilted wreath which I hang in our living room every Christmas season. It’s calico fabrics may shout 70’s, but my daughter helped select each one. Great memories. Great technique.

    —Kathleen Wittenberg on June 16, 2015
  • My very first quilt I made was a quilt as you go method. I have also made a table runner using this method. I will be anxious to see Gudron’s new book!

    —Cathy K. on June 16, 2015

    Kathy on June 16, 2015
  • I have never tried quilt-as-you-go, but it sounds wonderful. I enjoy doing the quilt tops but the quilting, not so much!

    —Pat on June 16, 2015
  • I have tried a baby quilt with stripes (strips of various widths) as a quilt-as-you-go process that I loved? I have also attended classes and purchased tools to quilt-as-you-go techniques that were not as satisfying an experience. So I am interested in these techniques!

    —Irma on June 16, 2015
  • I have done some strip quilting with QAYG, but I’m ready to check out some different techniques. Especially if I can find one that’s good for the baby quilts I make. It would be great to be (nearly) done with the whole quilt in about the same time as piecing a top!

    —Shelley Thomas on June 16, 2015
  • Haven’t tried this but it sounds a great idea for those of us without access to a long-arm quilter! Can’t wait to try it and Gudrun’s book looks full of great projects!

    —Suzanne on June 16, 2015
  • I’d love to try quilting as you go as one of my next projects. be nice to have it finished faster than usual.

    —Tesuque on June 16, 2015
  • I would love to learn quilt as you go. The most I’ve done is a machine embroidery project years ago when I bought my first embroidery machine. I have not done any projects without doing it as a machine embroidery however and would love to do it that way now.

    I was going to tell you which of those shown above was my favorite, but each time I scrolled down, I saw another I just loved. I think I might need this book.

    —VickiT on June 16, 2015
  • I tried it years ago but felt like my back was messy. Would love to try another person’s technique.

    —Janet Young on June 16, 2015
  • Yes, I have done (almost done) a quilt as you go Log Cabin quilt. Love working on it. I can’t afford to pay to have quilts quilted and I don’t know how to do it myself on my small machine, so I found my answer in quilt as you go quilts. Would love to win the book.

    —Kathy Davis on June 16, 2015
  • I have done some quilt as you go with just plain strips so am just beginning with this type of quilting. Would like to learn more projects quilt as you go as it looks like fun and would love to receive this book. Thank you sew much for the opportunity and your generosity.

    —sandra conner on June 16, 2015
  • I have only done very simple quilt-as-you-go. I’d love to learn to do more complicated shapes. This sounds like the perfect book. I’d love to win it! I have a difficult time finishing my completed tops into quilts, so this would solve that problem.

    —Sue Hilton on June 16, 2015

    —Linda on June 16, 2015
  • I have tried one quilt as you go project, a placemat. It turned out ok, but I think it would have been better if I had better instructions. So this book sounds like it would be very helpful.

    —stanleybeagle on June 16, 2015

    —Trudy Denis on June 16, 2015
  • Haven’t tried quilt-as-you-go yet, but want to, and this book might be the push I need.

    —Suzanprincess on June 16, 2015

    Thanks for offering a book to someone.

    Nancy on June 16, 2015
  • Loved it years ago as a quick way to get a project completed, and I think the "Petal Play" pattern in this collection is a good one as the finished result with this technique doesn’t look so ‘basic’.

    —Marty on June 16, 2015
  • I would love to learn to do this!!! Winning the book would be awesome!!!!

    —Pennie on June 16, 2015

  • I have done some, mostly straight pieces. Your book sounds great.

    Caroline Rohrer on June 16, 2015
  • I have two "quilt as you go" projects under my belt. One was part of a class and went very well. The second was a pattern that I did on my own and was partly quilted as you pieced it together and then part quilted when you applied some gold trim tape — got a bit complicated. Would like to try more patterns that use this technique. Two from this book caught my eye 🙂

    —Kate on June 16, 2015

  • I haven’t tried quilting as I go, but I could really enjoy not dealing with the feeling that I got so much done when I have finished piecing, only to have to layer and quilt, and then finally bind.

    —Patrice Hartung on June 16, 2015
  • Still learning….got a scrappy strip quilt to put together and then it will be ALL done! Yep! Will feel great!

    —Marla merryman on June 16, 2015
  • I have done two different table runners that I think were in the same pattern pocket that were quilt as you go – and I loved the technique. I also recently taught a beginning student of mine who wanted to finish a t-shirt quilt in the short 12 weeks that we have for our class time – in a quilt as you go method. He finished a wall-sized hanging quilt and was very pleased to accomplish it. Thanks for the give-away! Can’t wait to check out your book!

  • I did make a placemat set. It was a strip type – it was pretty easy & quick. I haven’t tried anything else yet. It is on the "list".The book sounds great. Thanks for the opportunity.

    —Maria Leal on June 16, 2015
  • Love it and always learning new ways to do it.

    —Kerry on June 16, 2015
  • I have never done a quilt as you go but would definitely love to learn how! It has been on my wish list for some time.

    —Sherry Fram on June 17, 2015
  • I’ve not tried quilt as you go yet, it is high on my ‘to-learn’ list as pinning floor space is very limited. Any help in this learning curve will certainly be highly appreciated.

    —Wendy on June 17, 2015
  • I haven’t tried it yet, but it’s on my list of things I need to try

    —Lynnette Lamance on June 17, 2015
  • I love the idea. The 5 quilt tops, ?# of place mats, and lap throws I have on a clothes rack would be finished by now with this method.

    Elizabeth on June 17, 2015
  • I’ haven’t tried the technique yet, but have been looking forward to the release of this book! I want to quilt it myself and all the pulling and turning the traditional method involves hurts my neck and shoulders. I can’t wait to get my copy of your book so I can enjoy quilting and not struggle anymore.

    —Tammy on June 17, 2015
  • I have never tried quilt as you go, but I would like to. I do a lot of machine quilting, and some projects seem so overwhelming, that they wait for years as tops before I get the machine quilting done.

    —Lynn Miller on June 17, 2015
  • I’ve only quilted a few lap quilts and that was stitch-in-the-ditch! I’m actually scared to begin anything else because, what if I make a mistake and have to take it all out? Or what if I don’t like it? Or yikes, I hate this part of the process! You can see my dilemma, can’t you? So, QAYG certainly is intriguing and after I quilt my pieced project that’s been ‘on hold’ for two years, I think I’ll have to give it a try!

    —Robyn W on June 17, 2015
  • A class I took talked about this briefly. I definitely want to learn more.

    —Collette Morton on June 17, 2015
  • I’ve done only the very basic straight line. Have seen several methods to join blocks, but not quite the result I am looking for.
    Looks like GE has nailed it,.
    Thanks for the opportunity to get her new book.

    —Barbara Tucker on June 17, 2015
  • Have made two dolly quilts, as I pieced the quilting was completed. made it easier to finish the two for twin girls. I have not done any big quilts as yet. Love to learn, so this book would be an opportunity for all of us . Ty

    —Barbara on June 19, 2015

    —Rosalie on June 19, 2015
  • I’ve never done a quilt-as-you-go project because I’ve always thought it takes some hand sewing. I can’t hand sew due to the arthritis in my hands. I’d love to win this book so I could learn quilt-as-you-go on my machine.

    —Joanne on June 19, 2015
  • Just finished a "quilt as you go" blanket for my new grand baby. I made it up as I went along and it turned out so cure. Need more ideas. Love all the above.

    —Linda on June 19, 2015
  • I haven’t tried it yet but would love to learn how. With arthritis and carpal tunnel I have to stick with smaller projects and omitting one step would help me tremendously.

    —Rhonda Davis on June 19, 2015
  • After finishing the largest quilt I’ve ever done, I think Quilt as you go would be a great follow-up! Especially since I don’t have a long-arm quilter.

    —Kathie Feller on June 19, 2015
  • I’ve never done quilt as you go and don’t know a thing about how to do it. The projects in Gudrun’s book are beautiful and I’d love to try this technique. I recently read that the back side of a quilt as you go project can be unattractive but I’d like to see for myself and would love to win the book!

    —Carol on June 19, 2015
  • I haven’t tried quilt as you go yet, but I am concerned about the bulkiness of so many joints in the quilt project. Maybe this book addresses those concerns?

    —Mildred Plaskett on June 19, 2015
  • I have not tried this method yet but have been reading and learning about it. Thanks for the chance to win a book that would help me get started learning a new way of quilting.

    —Renea on June 19, 2015
  • The book looks great! I want to quilt so much but have disability which makes it harder to sew. Hoping I could do this especially if it is by machine. Most QAYG are hand sewing to complete. I don’t have use of one hand so makes it a tad hard to do. So hope I get this book. Thanks for the chance to win!

    —DonnaRae on June 19, 2015
  • I am interested in learning how to quilt. This book sounds like something I need. Thank you for this giveaway.

  • Haven’t tried it yet, but I’d love to learn!

    —Mary on June 19, 2015
  • I have done some quilt as you go, but it only seems to work on small size things, which arent as hard to fit under the arm of the machine anyway. I wish there was a way to do large quilts as you go on a domestic tabletop machine

    —Madeline on June 19, 2015
  • I have wanted to learn how to do that for some time now. Just haven’t gotten around to it yet.

    —Lori S on June 19, 2015
  • I have done two queen size QAYG quilts. I used several different QAYG processes including a center medallion approach. I also have used jelly roll strips making totes and bags with this QAYG process. Your new book seems very original and creative. I would love to have a copy. I am always looking for new ideas to QAYG. My FMQ is not too great and I do a lot of creative straight line quilting. QAYG to me is the only way to quilt a large quilt and is very much fun doing small things like place mats and totes.

    —Pat Lloyf on June 19, 2015
  • I want to try quilt-as-you-go. It looks like it could speed up my projects.

    —Ocotilla on June 19, 2015

    —Cindy B. on June 19, 2015
  • I would love to learn to quilt-as-you go. I have arthritis, repetitive motion injury, and carpal tunnel. Working a block at a time would be much easier on my hands and back.

    —Kay Day on June 19, 2015
  • I tried this method once with a special quilt for my twin sister who was very ill at the time. Must admit I had problems as I used snugly brushed cotton fabrics & my machine didn’t like all the layers. I’d really like to try this again sometime & think Gudruns book looks like it has simple, well explained patterns in it.

    —Angie on June 20, 2015
  • Haven’t tried QAYG yet.

    —Ellee on June 20, 2015
  • I want to try the quilt as you go but beyond making the mini quilts for my granddaughter, I would like to learn more. The “Spring Bouquet” wall hanging would be nice to try this technique.

    —Alesha Klein on June 20, 2015
  • I’m a fairly new quilter & have not tried quilt-as-you-go yet. It’s on my list & this book looks like a great place to start!

    —Gail Kelly on June 20, 2015
  • I am always looking for new ways to quilt as you go. It’s the perfect way to actually finish every project I start. And right now I am into table runners and placemats. Love your colors and patterns.

    —Mary Lindberg on June 20, 2015
  • Absolutely love QAYG! It really moves my projects along quickly and they don’t become UFO’s:) Have only made two runners thus far so the book would be used over and over again as I’m re-decorating two rooms and of course want to get my pillows, runners and wall hangings down quickly. Thank you for the opportunity.

    —Diane on June 20, 2015
  • I am a new quilter, squares and rectangles and straight sewing. Quilting as you go sounds a bit challenging. You have my attention and I am curious. I love the color combinations you have chosen for some of the quilts. Thanks for the giveaway.

    —Virginia Bronner on June 20, 2015
  • I haven’t done it but I want to learn.

    —Andrew Kosmowski on June 20, 2015

    —Susan on June 20, 2015
  • Have not tried this method, but sounds like I really should with so many tops and so few completed!!! I am always wanting to just get onto the next quilt

    —Carolyn Robertson on June 20, 2015
  • I once tried this technique many, many years ago when I first started quilting. Have not done it since and would like to try it again. Particularly interested in a larger quilt making rather than really small projects.

    —Carol Kornfeld on June 21, 2015
  • This sounds wonderful! I finish a quilt top & dread the quilting process. I think quilting as you go would make the whole thing a lot more enjoyable.

    —Pat Hockett on June 21, 2015
  • I would love to learn to quilt-as-you-go. I can imagine it on small projects but would need some help with a larger quilt.

    —Helen on June 21, 2015
  • I have made a table runner and some placemats, but not a large quilt.
