    What a great tutorial by Leah Day. My problem is two-fold: I can't manage a large quilt in my machine, and the large quilts I make have a pattern that doesn't allow me to add the sashing to the top of the quilt. I simply eliminate that step! Anywhere that I am joining two edges, I trim the batting back 1/4" so I don't have the double thickness of batting at the seam, I add the back sashing as shown on the tutorial, and sew down by hand. I have done three very large queen size quilts like that. Each one that I do gets a little easier! You just have to figure out how much you can handle in your machine and split your quilt up into those sizes. A little extra with the hand sewing on the back, but I actually find I like that look on the back of the quilt! Thanks for all the help and advice on this board!

    One of Pauline Insence books shows how to join blocks. It is the one which has 3d lowers but not how to make them.
    Sorry all help can give at present.
    Finished is better than a UFO

    I have some of Betty Cotton's books and vhs tapes on qayg. Plan on making one in the future. It looks like it would be easy. And would also be faster than hand quilting.

    Check out this video. It's an excellent visual way to see the technique.

    Chocolate is the Answer. Who cares what the question is.
