Our   November   2017   Guest   Speaker   was   Wenda   Coburn.      Wenda’s   talk   was   on   at   least   7 quilt-as-you-go   techniques.      Quilt-as-you-go   offers   home   machine   quilters   methods   to easily   quilt   large   (or   small)   quilts.      The   key   is   to   break   the   quilt   down   into   mangeable areas,   such   as   strips   or   large   “blocks,”   quilt   the   three   layers,   then   assemblying,   and even   add   borders.      Wenda   explained   the   techniques,   showed   the   steps,   and   displayed   a selection of quilts using each of the methods.
