Do you believe rules were meant to be broken? If so, this improvisational quilt-as-you-go technique is for you. Instead of dealing with precise paper patterns and cutting measurements, you ll learn how to piece fabric onto small, manageable batting blocks. Let your creative juices flow as you quilt directly on the blocks (not the entire quilt ), whether in large abstract zigzags or small structured stitches. After the blocks have been joined, all you need to do is add backing fabric and binding, and voila it s finished

I like the variety of patterns offered for the quick piecing directly onto the batting. Most of the patterns are good for scraps, too.
Brandvig offers a couple of different methods for putting the quilt together, including using the traditional method of sashings between the blocks, but also sewing the batting all together, pressing well, and adding a back, as for traditioanl quilting.
I have known about quilt-as-you-go quilting, but this book offers so many more patterns and ideas, and cements my ideas into concrete steps and methods that I can use. This book will also help the beginner, as the steps are easily demonstrated here. This is a fun book! ( )
