About Me
I was sewing & quilting long before I got my art degree, which inspired me to find an easier way to quilt. Thus The Whole Quilt Method™ (TWQM)™ was born. I love finished quilts, but am impatient with the process. Now my quilts are quilted and ready to be bound as soon as the top is completed. It's sooooo neat to skip the whole basting and quilting as a 2nd step process. My other hobbies include spoiling my grandchildren, jewelry making, sculpting and bookbinding.

The Whole Quilt Method™ (TWQM)™

Posted on January 20, 2009 at 10:02am 3 Comments

It's so neat to see the quilting enthusiasm and meet fellow quilters all over the country. I've been quilting off and on since the 70's, but only in the last few years I developed my own method. The only unquilted tops I have now are the ones I did before TWQM! The southern stars design is really neat. See my pictures. I decided to play with the colors. I started by printing the designs onto interfacing and sewing them together. I added the fabric for the little squares and the triangles, then… Continue

Hi everybody, isn't this a cool site? Many thanks to CT.

The Whole Quilt Method is a process I have developed over many years. It starts with what is usually the end process, that is the setting of blocks and the layering of backing and batting, with the design on top. Pieces are added to the top of the quilt, and the foundation (interfacing) with the printed or traced design becomes part of the quilt. It's similar to paper piecing, but is done on the right side, there is no paper to… Continue

Corinne, I have only used the spray adhesive a time or two on small projects in well ventilated rooms, so I am not too concerned about the smell or toxic fumes. Bent Mountain is about 15 miles south of Roanoke. It is beautiful here. We live up on top at 3000 feet. We don't have any neighbors, just us and all the critters! The weather does present some challenges, we have snow, ice and fog when the "flatlanders" in Roanoke have nothing. Yvonne

Your TWQM technique is great. Your quilts are really fantastic. Thanks for inviting me to be your friend. I live in Colonial Heights. I belong to the Bits and Pieces quilt guild, but I seldom can make the meetings. I still work full time for a bank in Richmond, so I don't have much extra time to spare.

WOW! Corinne, you've been busy. How do you get so much done. My hubby love racing too. He watches it whenever he has a chance. He's dream vacation is to go to Indy one time. I just wish he would go with the guys and leave me home. I love your method of and use of interface. Do you have a book or pattern. I just got home from my monthly guild meeting and several gals saw your photos and are wondering the same thing that I am. They want to learn more. Hope all goes well with you. Have a great week.

Corinne: We have freezing fog. EVERYTHING is frozen, walkways, decks, roads. I'm afraid to drive in this stuff. 4 wheel'd rigs don't help either. We haven't seen the sun in so long I wonder if it's still out there. I have a question: Do you have a book or pattern on your TWQM method? Two other ladies (friend of mine and CT blogger) are interested in doing a program on it for our local guild later in the year. I would like to get your method down pat before any demo.
I'm glad that there is a market for purple. We don't allow any purple in the house. It's the color of our rivel college football team. It's kinda a joke but funny how easy it is not to do any purple. Plus with 2 boys staying away from purple is easy. We are avid WSU fans (crimson and gray) and the purple belongs to UW (purple and gold). Go Gougs, Washington State University. Sorry, I love football.....I grew up with 5 brothers...it's in my genes. Hope you get lots done today.

Hi Connie,
I'm interested in your method. I've never done a quilt as you go, but the idea intrigues me. Do you have a website or book or ???. pamb
