Quilt As You Go Vlog

I am PrairiePiper on Ravelry and knittingpipeline on Instagram. The quilt I made is not exactly in the book. I used the techniques in the book as a basis for a free style quilt with lots of different blocks. I made the quilt as a wedding gift. The bride is American and the groom is Danish, hence the flags on the embroidered block. For more information on the quilt please see my video Quilting Summer 2017 on YouTube.

This is not intended to be a tutorial, but rather a walk-through of some of the steps in making a quilt in the "as you go" method. I have learned from classes on Craftsy, blogs, and mainly the book, 

Quilt as You Go Made Modern by Jera Brandvig. 

I recommend you purchase this book as it is the best I've found on the quilt as you go method.

Jera's new book has just been released! Quilt As You Go Made Vintage! I preordered so I already have it (since recording).
  • Fabric: Hello Dolly by Bonnie and Camille by Moda, along with other fabrics I had in my stash. 
  • My machine is a Brother CSI6000 which is inexpensive and a great little machine with lots of high end features. (No affiliation).
  • Iron: Rowenta
  • Batting was left overs from other projects, mostly Warm and Natural 100% Cotton Batting.
  • Thread: Aurafil
  • Quilt measures 48" x 60". 20 blocks with 4 across and 5 down.
  • Batting was cut 12 1/2"
  • Squares were trimmed to 12".
  • Blocks were joined with 1" sashing strips in off-white.
  • Backing was Boundless from Craftsy.
Blocks include Pinwheel, 4 patch, 9 patch, Bird in the Air, Broken Dishes, Log Cabin, Courthouse Steps, Heart, 16 Patch, and free style.

I was a HIV-AIDS patient and I got it from cheating on my wife. It was sort of a payback but a week later I was told by a friend that the person who I cheated with had the HIV-AIDS virus and did not tell me. I was so stupid by not using a condom I thought since he was an old school friend he was trustworthy. But I was wrong. I cried and cried. Two days later, I got a phone call from my friend and he told me about a person who is known by another friend, who can help me. I could not let my wife know what I was going through. I finally got his email address: and I emailed this man my story and he replied me immediately saying i should be calm and told me that everything will be OK. I could not come to terms with what I was hearing but then I concluded it did not matter because I was so broken I just needed help. I was going out of my mind literally. I was confused with what he was telling me, but I listened. He told me about some materials i need to buy that he needed to cast the spell and I said OK. I bought the materials to him, I sent down my picture to him and my positive result sheet and he replied me that i am going to be negative under 3days. I message Him every 2hours for 2day and I knew he thought that I was crazy but I did care I needed a shoulder. Behold, the third day he messaged me i should go for a test that i will be negative. My marriage could be broken because of a stupid mistake and my life was on the line. I remembered when I was going to get the results of my re-test I called him up again and told him that I was going to get my results today and his reply was “so" and that everything will be as he explained. I knew then that he was getting tired of me calling him, maybe I was wrong. Well I got my results and the first person I called was him - again. As he said hello I started to cry and cry. I could not believe it. I was given a second chance in life.This man is a great spiritual HIV/AIDS healer, his healing spell on aids healing is very powerful .please brothers and sister, contact Dr Ose
