Scrappy quilt as you go question.....

15 years ago

I am trying to figure out how to make a scrappy quilt using a quilt-as-you go method:

Cut batting to desired size.

Cut back 1" or larger than batting.

Place batting on back, centered.

Stitch various shapes scrap fabric on batting/back.

Trim top scrap fabric same size as batting.

How do I connect the blocks together without using sashing. I want the scrappy look to continue all over the quilt without breaking it up.

I have bookoodles of batting left over from making charity quilts and thought this would be a good way to use up the scraps of fabric and batting.

Stitching the backs together is no problem, it is how to stitch the tops together. Scrap fabric stitching goes to edge of batting and there is no seam allowance on the tops.

Suggestions would be appreciated. As you can tell, I have no pattern, just flying by the seat of my britches!!
