Quilt as you go is the method that Melva ( a lady at quilting ) uses to make all her quilts for both nursing home's in town. I am making a quilt for our youngest son's girl friend. I was given a stack of 5" square samples and was planing on making a pioneer braid quilt. Melva explained how to make it quilt as you go.
