Learn How to Quilt-As-You-Go

Quilt As You Go Round Up
If you’re a quilter, a crafter, or if you ever dabble with fabrics, you likely have a bunch of beautiful scraps stored away.  One clever way to use up those scraps is to “quilt-as-you-go.”  With the quilt-as-you-go (QAYG) technique, you get to stash bust and exercise your creative sewing skills on the fly!

If you’ve never tried the technique before, Craftsy offers a fun video tutorial to learn the basics.  It’s a good idea to start with something small, like a pot holder, and then work your way up to bigger projects.  To give you some ideas for QAYG, I’ve rounded up twelve great projects.  Some are simple and perfect for beginners, and others are a bit more challenging for those of you who have “been there, done. that”.  Click on the project name to view the complete tutorial.
