The beauty of quilt-as-you-go is that a) each individual square is sooo much easier to handle than an entire quilt, and b) that I can undertake machine quilting that I would never be able to attempt on my cheap and cheerful domestic machine - for example this pictorial quilting:
It's so easy to stop in the middle of the block, pull your threads through to the back of the wadding and tie them together say in the knowledge that no one will see the knot once the backing is in place!
I've also been able to play with echo quilting:
And with lines that do not cross the applique:
I've had all sorts of fun!
The Tula quilt will be finished soon (hopefully) whereas the applique quilts will be with me for quite a while longer.
