I started sewing when I was 12, had classes in J high, had a feather weight in my 20's. Had a 1/2 million dollar sewing business in my 30's. The only thing I liked to sew was quilts. My mom and I made lots of "kansas basic depression quilts". This is the first detailed quilt book I have followed.
Returing to sewing, I have a Singer 99k ,1941, cousin to the featherweight, tougher cousin. I am using garage sale material for first quilt and it looks great.

Pros... I fell in love with the book, I hate detailed sewing,, this is very manageable. For the non precise quilt sewer this is a dream come true.
When I was confused by poor book directions about sashing, the writers sent me y tube videos that helped a lot. THIS SAVED THE DAY!!!

Very pretty book with great ideas and pics, great work for machines to do the machine quilting as you go. Works like a dream on my old basic singer 99k. You have a better machine, then it will look even better.
I loved how easy it was to drop the project and pick back up, I love now knowing how to design my own quilt.

Thank you writers for including standard measurements in the design chapter.
The local quilt store owner loved it and is getting a copy, and is having fantasy's of me teaching a class(when pigs fly).

Cons
I had to go the local quilt shop to learn to use a cutter, mat and square the blocks. Did not use the book system.
*** page 20, the pin goes in the upper right side of the fabric, cutting is done on the right side**** not clear, had to mail the writers.

***Sashing in the book is confusing, write to the authors from the webpage and they can send a y tube vidoe that is good, and really helps clarify the steps.
*** I did a lot more pressing than the book talks about, old sewing habits, it really helped.

The last sashing section in the book neglects to tell you to line up the horizontal strips, not the edges!!!! blew my quilt apart/
The binding section is could use better pictures, look at quilting academy vol 1.

I really love this system, my 16 sweet quilt, made with a three cut block system looks great. I had to change some instructions to make it work, the final pieces had to be done one at a time to fit my machine head, and I have no decotive stiches on my machine! I still looks great and feels tough. I was worried that the blocks would not be tight toghter and last.

The only part of the book that really annoyed me, was "quick, easy peasy" nonsense. My mom and I had quilts that lasted thirty years, so why be in a weekend rush! I took my time,really took my time over three weeks to get mine worked out. I did love being able to drop the project fast and pick it up fast.

That said after a month of work , I love my quilt and will fix all the mistakes in my next one. My book is written all over! to keep me straight on the next one, and I am working getting material So write in your learning curve and enjoy!!!
Love the book, shoot the editor, email the writers for help.
quilt on !

I started machine quilting many years ago when it was considered taboo. I did a lot of experimenting on my own and have bought a lot of quilt-as-you-go books as the method has became more and more acceptable. So, I have tried about every method out there and have made some very nice quilts. The difference with the method in this book is in the carefree cutting of the blocks and the actual quilt construction. The piecing and the quilting with the fancy stitches, I have done, I just didn't think to write a book about it, but the construction method is fantastic and easier than anything I have ever thought to try. The quilts in the book are just examples of what the authors have done, leaving a whole world of possibilities to explore with the process. This method is actually fun to do. I made a sample piece with a few blocks and showed it to my 92 year old mother, who would never never ever quilt on a sewing machine, and she loved it. Wants me to make a big quilt for her. This would be great fun to do with a group of carefree quilters. Buy the book and have some fun.

This was only my 3 rd quilt and I had never done a quilt like this. The book offered many ways to cut fabric to get different looks. I made a sample square to work before I worked on the actual quilt, because I was unsure of myself. As it turned out, it was fairly easy. The directions were fine until it came to the sashing. I had to go to youtube and watch a video to understand it. It was helpful to use my "work" square to try the sashing method. I love the quilting before you put the squares together. Overall I was very pleased with how it came out.

I used ideas from this book to make my second quilt. Loved it so much that I ordered another book they wrote: Quilt as you Go {re imagined} also available from Amazon. Lots of inspiration. By using their technique, combined with some others, I made my daughter a lovely rag quilt (full size) of fabric in Celtic designs in greens, gold and black, with a different quilt stitch design for each fabric design. I couldn't have done that on my home machine if I had done the whole quilt top and then the quilt stitching.

A colorful original book, dealing with crazy designs. There is not all that much you can say about crazy quilting, what varies is the way you arrange the pieces you cut. There are may different suggestions and I found the explanations for sashing very useful, I learnt something new and practical in the quilt as you go world. A lot of the designs are enhanced by fancy machine stiches which my old machine does not have, but nonetheless I enjoyed the book and look forward to making some of the quilts they show.

I purchased this on the basis of the good reviews, but the strip quilt pictured on the cover is not in the book!

If you love crazy quilts but don't have the time to make them the way great grandmother did, this is the reference book for you. These modern techniques make it possible to have a similar look, and at the same time achieve a beautiful piece that people will go crazy over. Quilt as you go is a real time saver. The one compromise is that by making it one block at a time, you need a thin sashing to put it together, thus breaking up the design. Although the blocks make it conducive to a more consistent pattern in each block, with careful planning you can use a variety of different scraps from your stash and still have a continuity to the piece. The thing I like most is the opportunity to experiment with all the long neglected decorative stitching on my old 1961 Singer sewing machine, in lieu of the time consuming hand embroidery that great grandmother did way back then to embellish the seams. I am very pleased with this helpful guide. Happy quilting!
