    Can you post a link? I googled for it but had no luck finding the video. Thank you.

    This is not exactly what you asked and I'll admit I have never tried QAYG, but from one newbie to another, you can quilt with even a small-throated machine. My sewing machine is a bargain-basement Brother that DH found for me on clearance and it has a very small throat. I was incredibly apprehensive about quilting my first quilt on it but it worked out fine. The quilt was 63 in. square.

    Anyway, I don't in any way want to discourage you from doing QAYG. Just wanted to ease your worry about regular quilting.

    Have a great time, and can't wait to see your first finish!

    A few weeks ago I posted a tutorial QAYG Flip N Sew With Pictures about the method I use. Love, love it, but I only do this method for small comfort quilts. Good luck.

    I think Connecting Threads has a coin quilt that is QAYG. It is done in long strips. One section will belittle strips sewn together and then sewn together with a wider solid strip. It is a free pattern. Nancy Zieman has one similar to it on her blog. I have done the Fun and Done quilts and that is exactly what they are. fun and when you get to the last block DONE,Name:  image.jpg

    I have made a Fun and Done quilt. Bought the rulers and found that since they are not standard size I can use the smaller one for 7 in blocks.
    The problem with Fun and Done is the seams to hold the blocks togather can pull apart so use smaller stitches than normal. It makes a stiffer quilt than the normal method. You are seaming as close as you can get when connecting your blocks and the blocks are thick. I wont make another one.
    You are cutting the backing larger than the block and batting then pulling the backing to the front and sewing them togather to connect the blocks. then you sew the backing to the front of the block.

    I think if this is going to be your very first quilt I suggest you do it the " traditional" way, I.e., cut, piece, sandwich, quilt..either hand or machine, then expand into the many ways of doing the same thing....I think like any other skill you must learn the basics first, then expand your horizons

    If you click on the blog of the person that started this thread, you will see a couple of methods from start to finish without interruption. I've done several with the first method and love both how it looks and how easy the actual quilting is when done on small blocks. Such a sense of accomplishment too. Have fun!

    I did a strip one without written directions and without uniform strips . Not my best but I will try it again with directions and more uniformity
