    Red face Quilt as you go

    I am making my first queen size quilt using the quilt as you go method. I have my squares done and am ready to sandwich and start the quilting process. I am wondering if any of you would be willing to share photos of quilts you have done using the QAYG method. It would be so helpful and maybe give me some ideas on how to do the actual quilting. Thanks so much!!

    You have to leave 1/2inch all the way-around the edge and after joining I nearly always quilt over or finish Off.

    The first is just joiningat1/4inch all round. The second. Is the one I'm working on . With this I put the sashing on before doing the cross hatching. I had quilted the circle area in each.

    I'm still working on this one - I've got 4 rows finished and it is making a queen sized quilt. I'm really liking the QAYG method because it is easier to handle the quilt.

    Was really pleased to see this thread come up and all the piccies in reply. I am also planning to try this method again. I did one years ago and hated it - the method I used then was very awkward. Since then I've seen several more ways to do it and am very interested in how you have all put yours together. Thank you Lucky Lady for putting up this thread.

    I sandwich each block individually, making the backing about an inch or two larger than the block itself. Then you quilt. Once you get them quilted, place the backings of your blocks right side together and sew a straight seam. That will leave you with two pieces sticking out that you can fold over the unfinished edge of the block and stitch in place! I hope that makes sense...I am getting ready to start a new one here in a few days. I will try and post some pics then!
