This month's guild program was Quilt University, and I was Professor Q. Four of us demonstrated skills and projects, and the membership rotated to each demo through the evening. Sharon demonstrated faux-piped binding, Janie taught how to make flying geese, four at a time, Maryann showed how to make the magic pillowcase, and I demonstrated Quilt-As-You-Go sashing, as I learned it from Alyssa Leichner's Skill builder BOM 2014 class.
I started with these quilt blocks; most are from the 2013 Flickr3x6 Bee (I'm sorry it no longer exists. That bee was such a great starting place for online quilty learning and relationships!)
Everyone who sat through the demo got one of these, a bottle of Professor Q's top secret, ultra high-tech, polymer adhesive. AKA Elmer's Washable School Glue.
The really cool thing about Alyssa's method of joining the quilt blocks is using glue to adhere the sashing strips before sewing them. The sashing stays in place, even when stitching several layers, and you end up with nice, straight sashing, front and back.
I started with blocks that were individually quilted,
then, once the sashing was done, I had an almost finished quilt!
I used the same technique to add borders, and I bound the quilt using that faux piped binding that Sharon demonstrated at our guild meeting. Done! Cute little quilt!
