  6. Quilt as You Go (QAYG)

    by , 07-27-2014 at 08:23 PM
    Hi there. There are so many different methods for QAYG - I used one method in this quilt but as I wanted to machine stitch it (rather than hand sew) this proved to be really challenging lining up not just each block horizontally and vertically but (what you can't see) is that I had cornerstones where each block met.

I attach all this with the back of the quilt up, then fold to the front

    You will need two different colors for the binding strips
    You cut the outer edge 1 3/8 you cut the flange peice 1 5/8 (inches)

    Then sew them just like you would normal binding in one long strip ( short side ...to short side right
