Introducing you to an easy quilt-as-you-go technique that’s creative and expressive. With this method, instead of dealing with precise paper patterns and cutting measurements, fabric gets pieced directly onto small manageable batting blocks. The blocks can then be quilted (not the entire quilt!), whether in large abstract zigzags or small structured stitches. After the blocks have been joined, simply add backing fabric and binding and—voilà—it’s finished!

    This book would be great for a young 'modern' quilter.
    For me, it was not what I was expecting.

    Quilting is easier than ever with Jera Brandvig's modern spin on the popular quilt-as-you-go technique. With this method, you will learn how to piece fabric on to small, manageable batting blocks, instead of using precise paper patterns and cutting measurements. Find your creativity as you quilt directly on the blocks (not the whole quilt!), whether in large abstract zigzags or small structured stitches. After the blocks have been joined, all you need to do is add backing fabric and binding, and your work is finished! Modern Quilts Unlimited, Fall 2014 Quilt-as-you-go (QAYG) is one of those techniques that every quilter is curious about trying, but can be daunting as the process is so different to the traditional process of making a quilt top and then quilting it. Having recently completed a QAYG quilt in record time, I'm a convert to the process, so finding this book by Jera of Quilting in the Rain was perfect timing.The book introduces the technique very thoroughly, so you can clearly understand the difference between traditional piecing and quilting and QAYG. Then there's a great selection of gorgeous quilts that are sure to appeal to the modern quilter. A must if you've ever thought about trying QAYG and haven't had a clue where to start. Make Modern Magazine, September 2014 This method combines patchwork and quilting together as most of the quilting is worked in small areas. The fabric pieces are sewn directly onto cotton punched wadding which is cut 1-1/2" bigger than the finished block. There is no backing at this stage, only two layers are quilted. The quilted blocks are then trimmed to the correct size. After the blocks are joined together a backing fabric is attached, with minimal quilting, before binding the edges.
