    Hello Jenniky!

    Time for the Olympics host nation to jump in?

    I have a QAYG teapots quilt that I shelved so I could get on with the patriotic quilt I'm working on. By October I hope to be doing the QAYG on the patriotic quilt, then after that picking up the teapots quilt to finish it off. Do I qualify to join you? I'm not planning anything exciting for the quilting. Just getting them done is challenge enough for this year.

    Muv... Plays national fanfare a warm Welcome to the Olympic Host Nation LOL

    Just getting your QAYG done is more than enough reason to join us. I hope you will share with us as you go. I know you like to hold off to the end before posting pictures. Any tips or insights you have into the QAYG techniques and all the variations out there would be greatly received.
    Have an awesome day!

    I'm following this post, but I'm not posting pics or even quilting... pout.. darn fibro....
    I, too, have fibro and the flares are worse this summer. But I am so glad this thread has been started - it keeps my mind off the fibro while I think about how I want to quilt my blocks! All the practice blocks that have been posted are so pretty! I can't wait to see how they all get quilted.

    Hello Jenniky,

    I've been following your posts and would like to join too. Just what I need to get back into the sewing room and I've always wanted to learn the QAYG. Thanks for doing this.

    Linda You are very much like me then.. and part of the reason I am hosting this thread is because I suffer from constant back pain that is often disabling. This helps me focus on quilting and the joy of creating instead of focusing on the pain. I hope all of you fibro sufferers can find some distraction from your discomfort/pain here in this thread also.
    Have an awesome day!

    GGal ... as a Lake Osoyoos-ian that makes you another almost Canuck too!! <clap> <clap> <clap>

    Muv ... Cheers!!! (said in a fully Brit way!) ... what else but a teapot quilt for you, to make it totally British! Hey, that could be entered in the Patriotic thread too! And too, the Jubilee quilt is to be QAYG? Now that was a surprise, I wasn't expecting!

    Jenniky ... I really like how all the nations meet here on the QB for a common interest of Quilting. Kind of like the Olympic spirit, in a sense!! Yes, Muv likes to wait til the end, though she also likes to give us teaser photos while in progress!!

    Welcome!!! one and all that have joined the thread since I last dropped by. There's been some really nice blocks shown that are going to be used for this project as we work along together. I keep remembering some of the different PUPs that I have, and are candidates when I start sewing with you!

    FMQ Foot? ... for those that are Janome users, they offer a FMQ specific foot with three interchangeable feet. My preference is the plastic large cupped foot. It's far nicer to use than the standard Darning Foot. I know it fits my 6600, and several of their other models. Also, another good investment is the blue dot bobbin case to use when FMQing. Til I had these, I abhorred FMQ and was convinced there was no way I would ever "like" it. Now, I'm starting to go beyond liking ... and into the loving stage!

    For non-Janomes, I suspect there may be other possibilities. One that I've read about is a "blue foot" and I think it is a generic foot for several machine. I believe it is somewhat similar to the plastic one I am using with mine.

    Keep going Ladies ... I'm looking forward to cheering as the first QAYG Olympic medals are awared

    I already messed up. My squares are 9" and I cut the backs 10 1/2" square and a batting square 10 1/2". Should they have been 12"?

    You're an excellent Leader Jenniky, for this thread ... and more so for how to "live" rather than "dwell" on the adversities with which we must face.

    We can all learn so much from you!! What a superstar, you are, indeed!

    And what a terrific job you are doing in leading this thread. Very clear and detailed instructions with well researched info. YOu're an amazing woman!!!!!!

    If you want to try for a group, it would be done thru the General Chit-Chat section of the QB or the Personal Diaries and Announcement section.

    I found some orphan blocks to adopt...using 6 (they were different sizes so added borders--scrap strips--to make the blocks all 13 1/2"), then cut 6 cream on cream solid blocks (I will use your suggestion, Jen, to do different quilting designs in them). Next will work on basting them together & quilting.
