The Quilt As You Go technique (QAYG) is a way to quilt blocks before putting a quilt together. QAYG is the most budget-friendly way to quilt. Instead of creating a large piece that needs to be sent to a longarm quilter, QAYG employs simple quilting, one block or section at a time. Here at Sewing With Scraps, we love the opportunity to use small pieces of batting scraps for quilt as you go projects.
Not only are these projects easy to make but they are perfect for using up your leftover fabric scraps from previous projects. The best part is that there are so many creative ideas for you to make from your scraps. Here are a few of our favorites to help get you started.
With your pattern selected you will need to gather a few simple supplies to get started. These are all things that the average quilter has on hand and you most likely already have a pile of them squirreled away in your stash.
For anyone new to the Quilt As You Go method, here is a great video with tips, tricks, and best practices for the technique. This way, you can really see how to create these amazing designs before you start your next sewing project. Find more QAYG tutorials in our pattern library.
Don’t forget our goal is to help you make the most of your leftover fabric scraps. So, be sure to join our mailing list and never miss a project again.
