Quilt As You Go.....Class

Comfort Quilt Day

Instructor: Barbara McDaniel
Leads a class in.....Quilt As You Go:

Barbara explains the Quilt As You Go Technique

There are several different Quilt As You Go Techniques.
Today we are learning the strip method.

We are checking out Barbara's class sample quilts

First Step:

Choosing coordinating fabrics...
Cutting them into 6 inch strips

I chose pale blues...

Betty chose florals...

Now to cut the batting:

Batting is also cut into 6 inch strips...

Batting was piled up on all of the tables...

Then we made strip sandwiches...
top fabric, batting, backing fabric

Let the sewing begin:

Barbara is doing a trimming demo

Time to clean up:

Next month we will continue the piecing/quilting
on these comfort quilts
