Finish (almost) Any Quilt show you how to take unfinished projects and new quilt ideas and easily make them quilt-as-you-go so that you finish your quilt as you make it. This book is perfect for quilters who have unfinished blocks and tops and who want to do the quilting themselves. Finish (almost) Any Quilt is great for beginners because you will learn how to easily quilt (almost) any block pattern that you wish to make and you actually end up with a finished quilt, not a quilt top. The beginning of the book describes projects that suit the easy quilt-as-you-go methods and gives several examples of how your finished quilts will look, and also shows what patterns don't work for this technique. There's also a section on making tee shirt quilts! The body of the book shows how to take your blocks and build them into the setting that you want - straight set, wonky, built-in borders or set on-point. The quilting section shows how to quilt your blocks (remember, with quilt-as-you-go you are only quilting small blocks, not the whole quilt at one time!) using traditional straight stitching, grid quilting, decorative stitch quilting, "curvy line" quilting, echo quilting using a walking foot and easy "no rules" free motion quilting, and all the tips that make each of these choices simple and successful. The joining process is 16 pages and 17 photos of detailed instruction, giving you everything you need to easily bring your quilted blocks together into a finished quilt. The binding chapter has tips on how to keep your quilt square, how to put on a gorgeous binding all by machine (no hand sewing) and the author's techniques on how to create "pretty corners" on your binding. You'll easily and quickly finish your quilts and happily start looking for new projects knowing that you can finish every quilt project you start!

I Started a quilt as you go about 2 - 3 years ago when I took a class, and I loved making the crazy squares, but I did NOT Like the method to join them. So my squares
just laid in a drawer.
I was excited when I discovered Marguerita's book, Crazy Shortcut. Quilts, and I began
making a new crazy quilt and finished it very quickly. Then I began making another one as I taught one of my friends how to do it. She also bought the book, and we both finished our quilts quickly.
Now my friend who took that class with me and also had unfinished squares in a drawer and I have taken out our squares after discovering How to Finish Almost Any Quilt and we are looking forward to finishing them quickly. Bless Marguerita`s heart.
I definitely agree with her. A finished quilt is better than a perfect quilt.
I would recommend these books to anyone.

Back in the 70, when I didn't know anyone who quilted and had literally never seen a quilt face to face, I made a bed quilt for my daughter using instructions for quilt as you go. Every stitch from the piecing to the quilting was done by hand. It was a disaster. The front looked OK, but the back was a mess because it just did not go together at all.

This book teaches you how to take quilt blocks you already have, or others that you want to make from scratch, and put them together on a sewing machine NEATLY. She tells you how to make the blocks all the same size, how to put borders on it, how to quilt it and finally how to get it together so you will be proud of the results.

You get to do the machine quilting on small "sandwiches" and then put the sandwiches together into the larger project.

I haven't used her method, but after reading the book, I know it will work and that the problems that I had with that long ago quilt won't happen when I do use her method. She obviously spent a lot of time thinking this through, and there are enough videos on YouTube showing her actually doing it that I know it will work.

I bought this book because I love all aspects of quilting EXCEPT for the actual machine quilting. I learned hand quilting years ago from my grandma. I didn't quilt for many years, then 5-6 years ago I "rediscovered" quilting. I also found a wonderful local quilt shop that I now feel like is my 2nd home. My friends there all did their quilting mainly by machine. They were astonished I did all of mine by hand. They convinced me to give machine quilting a try..I did, and the rest is history as they say. The only issue I have is the actual quilting part. Free motion quilting (fmq) to be exact. I just couldn't get the hang of it. And yes, I am my own worst critic (aren't we all, usually?).
I have wonderful machines, even one with a 12" harp; so the issue is me. I find I do fairly well on smaller projects, which is why qayg is right up my alley!
I had watched YouTube videos, including Ms. McManus'. I found her to be relatable and clear on her instructions. I also found her video detailing how to make an inexpensive sewing machine table to be a wonderful idea!
When I found she had written this book there was no question, I had to have it.
Honestly it's been several months since I purchased and thumbed thru it. I was putting the sashing on a quilt top last week when I remembered this book. I pulled it out, and the techniques she used worked perfectly on my quilt top!
This is also the 1st time I've loved the back of the quilt almost as much as the front.
Also since I've been doing more fmq using her techniques, I did a crib size quilt the "regular" fmq way and its the 1st time I haven't taken out any quilting stitches. My husband couldn't believe it!
I also have noticed in the reviews if there is an issue Ms. McManus has personally replied to the reviewer offering help, refunds, and she even recommended several other author's books. Now that's customer service.

I was disappointed with the instructions and lack of proper illustrations on how to Quilt as you go. The instructions for doing the back piecing were not clear and how the pieces are put together.
I am glad that I had other resources to learn this technique. If you are a visual person do not use this book to learn the technique. She did have some tips of which threads to use. But on the whole I paid too much for this book and did not accomplish my goal of learning how to "Quilt As you Go."

Honestly, I had to go back to some different YouTube videos that already existed that showed how to join blocks in a very similar method (everyone knows who makes these videos so I won't list it). This book gives great suggestions on what type of blocks will work better and you will also get very generous measurements on the joining sizes when it come to attaching the blocks. She also shows samples of finished quilts done in this method. Marguerita also gives you her personal overview and insights from her years of experience doing this method which will add so much to your knowledge of not only doing this method but what type of blocks and patterns work better. This alone is worth the book. I will also add that the 22" square ruler I got from Quilt in a Day is almost necessary as a companion tool to be successful in making a big queen quilt as you will want to make your blocks bigger (and consistently the same same size which this huge ruler lets you do on a 22" block). I already joined two big oversized blocks together using her directions and measurements and was very successful. Its very, very easy once you get it. I guarantee you'll be 100% successful in joining already quilted blocks into a finished queen or king quilt - all done on your domestic machine.
