    Well, here are my pictures so far. I will try to explain how I quilted each block. I am new to this, so please don't judge my efforts.

    The first block, the pink and green block, I did what I think is a meandor in the center and a leaf design on the white part. I do not know if you can tell much by looking at the back.

    Block 2, pink star, I did stitch in the ditch and a diamond in the center.

    The backs of my blocks do not want to upload. I will take some more pictures and finish uploading in a few minutes.

    Block 3, yellow star with blue flowers, I did it all meandering.

    Block 4, yellow star with yellow and burnt orange flowers, I echoed around the star and did a square in the center.

    Block 5, pinkish red star with pink flowers on biege background, I did what I call a repeat of echoing around the star.

    Block 6, mauve star with blue center, I tried to make a vine pattern.

    vickig - Your T-Shirt Quilt is awesome! I think it is one of the best ones I have seen!

    ssnare - You did a great job on your quilting of your blocks. I have not mastered meandering yet! I usually just stitch in the ditch or follow around designs.

    I am planning to use this technique on my next major quilt as my shoulder objects to my quilting twin and larger on my home machine. I've done it before, but not lately.

    In answer to your question, Jennky about my blocks. The background of my blocks is a green with butterflies and yes the picture of my blocks is on a blue bedspread. I have finished quilting my blocks and I will show pictures soon.

    Thank you Quilte for the pictures of the different types of quilting. I looked on line and did not get much information.


    Regarding the question about the block already quilted and would you use it in a quilt and cut it down or how would you solve the problem. I might make some smaller blocks to fill in so the other blocks would come out the same size as the larger block. Or cut the larger block down and stitch around the edge after it is cut. A third way would be to add borders to the smaller blocks so they were the same size as the bigger block.
    ssnare - i believe that was answered previously. You would use whatever fabric YOU wish for the backing. Just cut it to the size rcommended in the tutorial being used. You apply the backing as you quilt each block individually, and BEFORE attaching blocks 1:1 - you are quilting both the front and back of the quilt as you go.

    most quilters prefer 100% cottons, but i would want to 'match' the materials you are using in the front of your blocks. You can cut your backing blocks all from one fabric, as seen in the picture below;

    or in different fabrics for each block, as seen below.

With stippling and meandering I try to start in the corner of the block and move out from there. My aim is to fill in the block with the design and quilt off the opposite corner if possible.
    I never thought about doing this, what a great idea. I have had a few bobbles where I had a seam not lay flat and had a do over, this would solve that!
    Thanks!

    Has anyone else used this technique and if so would you share pictures of your quilt with us??

    Here's my grandson's graduation t-shirt quilt using the method we're currently going through. Once you get the hang of it, it's actually very easy.
    This is so gorgeous. I LOVE the backing fabric you used, and how the tshirt layout came out. For the tshirt fronts - did you spray baste them to the batting?
    Thanks!

    VagabondIndigo and VickiM ... My complements to both of you for the matches being nice and straight and square on your quilts. I haven't done this QAYG technique, have liked the concept, and have been wanting to try it thru this thread ... though I have had hesitations, as store samples in several stores that I've seen done have not fully matched up or been straight and square. What a turn off .... and you've proven, it does not need to be such!
