Dividing a quilt top into sections makes it possible to quilt a large top on your domestic sewing machine. This method is similar to assembling “quilt as you go” blocks, without the “as you go” part: piecing is done first, then quilting.

There are two ways to do sectional quilting, depending on whether or not your top has sashing between the blocks:

  • Method 1: Sectional quilting without sashing (this is a long tutorial, with lots of images, the page may take some time to load)
  • Method 2: Sectional quilting with sashing  (this one isn’t available yet: my example quilt is still in process)
