Quick & Easy Quilt As You Go Gift Ideas

Quilt as you go” is a fun technique in which you piece and quilt all at once so by the time you are finished with your top, all you have to do is bind, and voila… your done! It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3.

Quilt as you go gives you way to focus on each piece individually and not worry about the entirety of a project. These are perfect for the holidays when you may have to come up with quick gift ideas!

Watch Jenny in this tutorial as she shows you how to quilt as you go with any block! (And check out this throwback tutorial for even more helpful quilt as you go tips!)

Here are some great “Quilt As You Go” gift ideas:
