I am doing the Row BY Row patterns which make a 9" by 36" strip then you put them together for your quilt. I plan to use shashing between the rows.several strips I need to free motion or quilt the background before adding the other pieces. Has anyone done QAYG on their strips? If so how did you go about it? Or should I just make my strips, sandwich the whole thing and quilt it then add rest of pattern after that. Example 1 pattern is a clothes line with seperate small blocks tacked that are hung on the clothes line, not sewn into the background. Any suggestions appreciated.
