    Book details


Finish (almost) Any Quilt shows you how to take unfinished projects and new quilt ideas and easily make them quilt-as-you-go so that you finish your quilt as you make it. This book is perfect for quilters who have unfinished blocks and tops and who want to do the quilting themselves. Finish (almost) Any Quilt is great for beginners because you will learn how to easily quilt (almost) any block pattern that you wish to make and you actually end up with a finished quilt, not a quilt top. The beginning of the book describes projects that suit the easy quilt-as-you-go methods and gives several examples of how your finished quilts will look, and also shows what patterns don't work for this technique. There's also a section on making tee shirt quilts! The body of the book shows how to take your blocks and build them into the setting that you want - straight set, wonky, built-in borders or set on-point. The quilting section shows how to quilt your blocks (remember, with quilt-as-you-go you are only quilting small blocks, not the whole quilt at one time!) using traditional straight stitching, grid quilting, decorative stitch quilting, 'curvy line' quilting, echo quilting using a walking foot and easy 'no rules' free motion quilting, and all the tips that make each of these choices simple and successful. The joining process is 16 pages and 17 photos of detailed instruction, giving you everything you need to easily bring your quilted blocks together into a finished quilt. The binding chapter has tips on how to keep your quilt square, how to put on a gorgeous binding all by machine (no hand sewing) and the author's techniques on how to create 'pretty corners' on your binding. You'll easily and quickly finish your quilts and happily start looking for new projects knowing that you can finish every quilt project you start!
