In 1987, I taught myself the "quilt as you go" method for making quilts. Shown is one of the quilts I made with this technique that year.
Our youngest daughter (April) was born that year.
I used my own blouses made from Indian cotton as the starting point for this white crazy quilt.
Each 5 inch block was constructed and quilted at the same time using stitch, flip and a sewing machine. The blocks are joined with sashing on the reverse side. I thought this quilt was lost, but I found it yesterday. (read more about that discovery on 100 quilts.
Log cabin (above) was also made in 1987. (quilt as you go method)
Blackwork was also made in 1987. Quilt as you go technique.
Above - the first quilt I made when we moved to Manitoulin in 1993.
