    Thank you for wonderful instructions and a way for people like me (notorious for UFOs) to end up with a completed quilt.

    When you finish your quilt can look something like this one.
    OMG!!!! WOW!!! That was wonderful and your Quilt is to die for. Absolutely Beautiful!!

    Thank you for giving us this tutorial. It is so clear and easy to understand. I have always wanted to do a "quilt as you go" quilt, and this tutorial has motivated me to finally make one. I made one of these strip quilt tops a couple of years ago, and had it quilted by a long arm quilter. She did a great job on it, but of course it was a bit expensive. With a QAYG, when it's done, it's done, and I like that. Thanks again for posting this easy to follow tutorial
