    Wildyard - Part Five will be the attaching of the sashing.

    SewExtremeseams - I will go back and take a look and see which Lettering is on a darker picture and see what I can do to repost those for you in a different way.
    I have to laugh at myself because some times I don't know if the picture is actually blurred or if its my eyesight. Yikes.. Ha ha
    Have an awesome day!

    SewExtremes _ Thanks for letting me know about the readability of my recent picture posts. If you can give me a couple of days I will re-post the complete tutorial with words under the picturse over in the Tutorial Section and then provide a link for everyone to it. In the future I will also post the words under the pictures in my posts here. I hope that helps.
    Have an awesome day!

    QUILTE- No publishing books for this Chickee. How would I ever get any quilting done. I'll be here when you are ready to jump into a QAYG project. In the mean time it is good to have your input and feedback in our discussions.
    Have an awesome day!

    Jenniky,
    I do this method frequently (see my avatar), and for me the biggest challenge is aligning the intersections when attaching the rows. I have to do a hand baste for 1 -2" at each intersection to keep them lined up. Your idea of pinning the quilt together a few inches away from the seam is a good one, and I think it would help prevent the weight from pulling. I will be trying that this afternoon when I attach the first 2 rows of my Snoopy quilt.

    I just found your thread a few days ago and have skimmed through it. You may have mentioned this tip -- I find the quarter inch presser foot a necessity when attaching the sashing. The layers are thick and the presser foot fits so nicely into the ridge. My sashing seams improved so much once I started using it.

    Thanks for posting this thread!

    Daylesewblessed - I have not tried using the quarter inch presser foot to sew on the sashing. But sounds like a really great idea. I'm going to try it and see how it works for me. I'm glad you have found our QAYG thread and I hope you will continue to share with us as we move along exploring the various Quilt As you Go Techniques and Variations.

    Everyone- I know I sound like a broken record, but I will continue to encourage everyone to give their input, tips, questions, etc. into our discussions. It's a win win for everyone when we share our knowledge and experiences.
    Have an awesome day!

    You are doing a fabulous job Jenniky. I'm behind in reading the posts but have skimmed them this morning. Well done everyone and thanks for all the photos and explanations Jenniky.
    Working for a living interferes with fun, but it pays for it.

    Jenniky, oh, I didn't mention I was talking about future photos... I'm so sorry. Um, I was planning to ask you on ones I couldn't make out from the photos you have already posted. You have done such wonderful work that I do not want to create more work for you. Thank you so much for all you are doing for all of us to learn.

    I have wanted to learn QAYG for a long time, so afraid to try it myself. I know how to sew very well, can't explain my fear of actually doing this QAYG. I won't be able to post pictures, for some reason, it doesn't work for me. Maybe I can get my daughter to do it for me? Thanks for this tutorial.
