    I've been watching for a no-sashing QAYG method. It does seem like a lot of extra trimming though. Was there a lot of waste?

    Hello Foxflower, Actually no there was not a lot of trimming waste. Hopefully this afternoon I will get the chance to post the rest of the steps.
    Have an awesome day!

    Following the previous steps I showed after trimming the batting 1/4" less than the top square.
    I was ready to attach the blocks to make a row.

    I suppose there is a lot of trimming in this process but not a lot of trimming waste.
    I am assuming that the reason I would not pre cut my 1/4" in less than my top square
    because there is no way to be certain how much the quilting of the square will effect the
    the batting size. I hope this makes sense.

    I gauged where to stop and start my join seams based on the batting.
    This was the step I was missing which caused my problem in my first attempt.

    My thinking is that Im sure there are better more precise tutorials on this
    method that are just not available freely on the internet or I just did not
    happen across them. Also in hindsight I did not think that the out side squares should
    not of had the batting trimmed 1/4" less than the top square. Best bet is to trim the batting
    as you go and only trim the batting 1/4" less on joining sides of the squares.

    This method is do able if your quilt design does not allow for sashing in between the squares.
    I personally could not imagine myself wanting to attempt to make a full size quilt using this method.
    The sectional quilt as you go method in my opinion would be a better option for quilts with no sashing.

    I will demonstrate and attempt to explain the sectional quilt as you go method next. Questions or comments
    on the No Sashing QAYG method as I am calling it are welcomed.
    Have an awesome day!

    I don't know if I've been sleeping under a rock all these months, but this is the first time I've gone to Quilting Board Challenges and Contests. Tonight it has taken me a couple of hours to read through some of the thread. How interesting all of this is to me!! I'm working on a quilt right now that I wish I had done this method. But live and learn! I'm not very computer savvy, but I suppose there will be a way for me to catch up when I am ready to do a quilt using this method. I have Sue blocks that would work well for this. Congratulations and thank you to Jenniky for undertaking this project. It is much appreciated. And also congrats to all who have participated. The pictures are amazing.
    One step at a time, always forward.

    Welcome to the thread Gale. The QAYG projects are definitely fun to do. When you are ready to start your QAYG project I hope you will share it with us here and if you need any help myself and others can help
    Have an awesome day!

    I'm having an A/C installed on Thursday next week ... maybe I'll be able to get some sewing done during the summers now (over 80F is not comfortable). Couple of weeks ago, I hauled all my orphan blocks, batting, backing, cutting tools to the office and made 'sandwiches'; a week ago, the spray adhesive was applied ... agh! I wanna sew!!!!!!!!!!
