About the event

In this three-hour workshop you will learn the "Quilt As You Go" method of quilting,  a technique for joining blocks (they might be pieced, appliqued, embroidered, or just plain  fabric) to make a completely finished quilt on your home machine. The “quilt as you go” idea is not  new, but this technique will allow you to attach blocks with almost any width of sashing on the  front of the quilt – a problem that has plagued this technique for years. In this workshop, Ann will teach you to adapt the BAT Quilting technique to quilts of many different  sizes of blocks and sashing while you complete a quilt that is about 54” square.

This variation on the quilt-as-you-go technique was  developed in order to help quilters who want to  make quilts for the Quilts of Valor project. With  this technique, an individual quilter or a group can  complete a quilt on home machines without the  backlog of waiting for a longarm to become  available. Of course, the technique can be adapted  to many quilt patterns
