Many years ago I signed up for a class to make a quilt as you go quilt. I didn’t read the fine print and this quilt took a lot of hand stitching. I don’t like hand stitching. It took a very long time to finish. Fast forward to this week when watching Sewing With Nancy and about half way into the show they showed a quilt as you go method that requires no hand sewing. So I sat down at my sewing machine and finished this baby quilt in one afternoon. I am very happy with the results. Of course you can add more detail to the squares, but I just wanted something quick. I about got booed out of the house as everyone here are Seahawk fans, but the baby’s family are die-hard Bronco fans, so it works. I brought the backing fabric around the edges and finished it the same way I put the squares together. I mitered the corners simply by folding and pressing.

You can’t see the quilting in this picture, but about 13.30 minutes into the show there is a quick tutorial on quilt as you go.
