Quilt-As-You-Go finish – a great way to use up scraps of wadding and practice machine quilting.
In this video Valerie shows you how you can use up (large) scraps of wadding and give yourself a perfect size project to practice your machine quilting skills on.
With this method of contructing your quilt you do need to pre-think a lot more – i.e. which blocks are going where and have wadding, backing and sashing strips ready – but as thin sections this quilt is easy to handle.
You can practice your free motion quilting or you could simply quilt straight lines across the block and/or simple wavy lines using the walking foot and a straight stitch.
Stitch and Thread Options
You could think about embellishing with some decorative stitches too and using some really pretty statement threads.

and the binding had straight corners (not mitred) and you can see how by clicking here:
