    Thanks for an excellent tutorial. I can certainly follow. Will definately have a go at this one. Clever idea using the phone book as a foundation - great recycling. :thumbup:

    If you take your block and put batting behind it as as though you are going to quilt it you can then do FMQ or try it. I had fun with mine and it turned out great. I used it for a baby quilt and it is just perfect. :thumbup:

    I've made several quilts like this but marking the center is a good idea. Myself I prefer to use a foundation fabric like old ugly stuff or muslin.
    A couple yrs. ago I made one like this for a great nephew and I made 130--6 1/2" blocks for a twin size quilt.
    Will never make one with that small size blocks again especially making a quilt that big.
    It was fun. Didn't really take that long to make all the blocks. I also used a light blue center strip.
    I liked how all your center strips were 1" wide.....

    WOW what neat tools we have just lying around the house; saw a tute the other day on QB with link to how to piece on coffee filters, and now this, a phone book page. This QB is such an all around great place to be; educational, entertaining, fun, the list goes on. Thank you so much Kyia!

    I really appreciate the tutorial. I was on a quilt retreat last weekend and some friends took the scrap class and used their scraps and selvages to make this quilt. Yes, they saved selvages for a year and then took over the ones that was not taking the class at retreat. I will try this using your tutorial. Thanks!

    I am doing something like this for my Quilt of Valor. Except I am stitching to a 14 in backing square with a piece of batting and using the stitch and flip method. I guess you could call it Quilt as you go. It is nice to have a block all quilted when you are done.

    That is beautiful! I made a quilt like that but I used the sheerest pelon I could find and cut into squares the size I wanted the blocks to be. Then I sewed the fabric to the pelon, turned block over, cut to size and bingo...No paper to peel, no seams to ravel, only the setting seams showed. Gives nice stability to the blocks.
