    How do you join"quilt as you go" blocks?

    As a newbie, I hope this isn't a dumb question. However, after reading a tutorial, I followed it just fine but they quit after making the block. How do you join these blocks so that it is finished on both sides? Can't figure this out on my own. Thanks.

    Here's another.

    And then there is the Cotton Theory.
    I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.

    There are several different methods for QAYG.
    I have only done one the Fun and Done where the blocks are quilted before you put them togather. This method has you cut the backing bigger and bring it to the front to connect the blocks. All QAYG seem to make a stiffer quilt and I dont care for this so will not make another one.

    Here is a link to a tutorial I posted in the Tutorial section. These are the ones I use the most but there are lots out there.

    QAYG that Kimberly uses :-)
