More about my Quilt As You Go (QAYG) Kid's Quilt

You know the song "I Get Around"  by the Beach Boys....

" I'm gettin' bugged driving up and down the same old strip.
I gotta find a new place where the kids are hip." 

Well, I've been getting around....learning all about how to attach each separately quilted block in the easiest, neatest fashion to get to my finished quilt.   

Step 1 - make your block, sandwich your layers (top, batting, back) quilt, trim away excess.  Make another block and another and another. 

Step 2 - combine block 1 to block 2.   Combine blocks 3 and 4. Combine blocks 5 and 6.  Now combine first row to second row and then to third row.

 I spiced this kid's quilt up a bit by adding the red, aqua and purple attaching strips.   Anything goes with a kid's quilt.

You get the picture.  And so your quilt grows.  And when it is done, it is done.  So do-able since the block size makes the quilting very manageable under your domestic sewing machine.

Next step....On the back finish the closure by hand (or machine).  I prefer the hand sewn finish and use the ladder stitch.  Complete and neat.   

And, finally, add the quilt binding.  Thou shall be done ASAP.
