Quilt As You Go

These are my first two blocks, quilted and sewn together.

And this is the back.

Hopefully if I quilt as I go, it will get done faster...

I tried machine sewing first, but the seam must have been a smidgen too large. Then I ripped out and sewed by hand, and it seemed a bit big. I could feel a tiny bit of separation under the sash strips. Then I opened it up and sewed the 2 blocks together through all the layers and batting to make them stay flat and connected, then re-did the last seam and I like it a lot better.
