    Thanks. You have all answered my question. I still get so nervous when I try something new. All of your quilts are beautiful.

    I love QAYG quilts. The largest I have done is queen size (no need for a king). I've done several methods, block by block, section by section, row by row. My next onewill be a whole quilt where you only put 1/3 of the batting in the center, quilt that, then attach batting on either side, quilting as you go along. I also like Sharon Pederson's style where each block is quilted and then put together with reversible sashing. A quilt such as Double Wedding Ring is difficult to do section by section (although there is a version that can be done block by block - see "rings that bind" for info on that).

    Fun method! Especially for those who need a large quilt, but are intimidated trying to quilt it on their home machine.

    I am sorry that I did not ask this question sooner - you know the "dumb" question syndrome. I am one of those who gets easily intimidated with something new so all of this info is really reassuring.

    Hey Lovinquiltin,

    Yours was NOT a dumb question! FWIW, after replying to your query, I checked "watch this topic" because I, too, wanted to learn more about QAYG!

    Like you, I have always been reluctant to ask questions for fear that I would be thought "stupid." Despite my degree from an Ivy League college, I often wonder how much richer my life might have been if I had felt free to ask questions!

    Ditto! That is what I really like about this board. I found quilters on this board to be some of the nicest and most helpful people I have ever encountered. Yet, I have never met not one single person. That says so much. Even if I decide to stop quilting (which I doubt will happen) I would still remain a member of this board.

    I did a king size spread. It had 36 blocks but then I added borders to make it large enough for a spread.

    It's also a great method for group quilts:

    The first one front/back is one my Bee did for a friend back in 2003 who was making a big change in her life. All the blocks were turned in quilted and I just had to put them together. B&W was required for the backings. The sashings weren't all sewn down yet on the back. This one was around 60x72.

    The second quilt (front/back) is one we did for a member's first baby. Again, B&W was required for the backing (do you sense a recurring theme in our group?). This time when I put it together, I inset the blocks instead of doing a grid layout. This was done back in 2005. Wow, time flies.

    The last picture is one of my favorites of John enjoying his quilt.

    It's a great technique.
