    Hi Jenniky,

    Enjoyed reading all your great tutorials on QAYG. I've been working on my first
    quilting in sections using the last method you did. I started this around same time
    you were starting your first tutorial and I'm still not done. LOL. Well the top is done
    but I still need to add borders. I found this method very time consuming but it was
    nice not to wrestle a big quilt through the machine. I think this method would work
    well if you split your quilt in two or three sections then all the seams would be parallel.
    I did mine in 9 sections (3 x 3) + borders. What was I thinking? I just hope it doesn't
    come apart after doing all that work. I'll share a tip about trimming batting. Instead
    of trying to trim both battings at the same time, I trimmed one side with a ruler then
    put the other side underneath and marked with a Clover chalk then cut the other side.
    Works really well with Warm and Natural batting. Don't worry about a little gap, batting
    is quite forgiving. Have a good day.

    The cold weather will soon be upon us
    Have an awesome day!

    Jenniky - glad you figured it out. Looking forward to trying this method. I just haven't felt like quilting much lately with all these house issues we're having.

    Just ran across this QAYG Challenge. I have been in the process of making a string quilt using the QAYG method and wish I had found it sooner as you have many things here that I struggled with. So now I am in the process of reading 60 pages! LOL
    Jenniky you are doing a great job on your tutorials.
