justflyin -- very nice. I like how you used alternating colors going across.
Welcome to the Quilting Board!
And what a great pic you captured.
Now you just go and relax ... and enjoy the rest of your day/evening and don't stress about responses!
I forgot to respond about the different technique questions.
I'm with the others ... stick with the one technique and explore all the variables, before going onwards to a different type of QAYG.
It'd become just too confusing, to get too far into other techniques at the same time.
(I confuse easily, and already am getting confused with the extras that have been posted!!)
Sew many ideas ... just sew little time!!
I hope you'll stay with this technique until finished...then maybe the fun & done. I am interested in any QAYG that I can do TOTALLY by machine...I don't do much handwork.
Also, thanks to everyone that made the nice comments on my fun & done projects.
lol, yes, I use a similar method. i dont usually bother to cut them down much, I now just save all the scrap fusibles from various projects for a quick basting. I have never done it with a whole quilt top, nothing larger than 36" square. little dots, or bits, or squares, or whatnot about 3-4 inhes apart - like you would baste with pins. I do the top first, then the backing. My favorite part - it allows me to center a backing really easily if I have a pattern or otherwise want a certain fabric motif in a certain place on the back. I get impatient with shifting pins for something like that, so this works into my quilting ADD perfectly!

The VOTES are in.
It seems it unanimous to stay with the current method. So that is what we will do. We will continue to explore the variations on this method.

Granna of 5 - Welcome Im glad you have found us. Subscribing and Bookmarking is basically the same. I think that Subscribe is just the new term with the QB's new system.
We will all look forward to seeing the squares you select for this project. I also want to invite you to share your QAYG experiences with us and participate in the discussions. And Questions are always welcomed.
Have an awesome day!
