    I love this tutorial. I promised a king quilt to neighbor and now I know how I will quilt it. Bless you!

    Since I am a visual learner, this doesn't help me much. However, it is fairly easy to understand. Thanks to the ones who added the visual part of the tutorial!! I'm learning something new every day!!
    Be the best that you can be at everything you do.

    For a King sized quilt, I wonder if you could use this method to make two or three sections, then join them with another method. My problem with quilting large quilts on my sewing machine is moving the bulk of the quilt around without experiencing pain. Even though this method keeps the previously quilted portions to the left, by the final rows, you're still dealing with the weight of the quilt on the left side.

    This is a good question. I have quilted each block individually to the batting only, then sewed into rows, then did this method, leaving the backside without quilting. This meant only sewing the straight seam to add each new column. I only use a 3/4 sewing machine and it was a challenge, weight-wise, towards the ends. Thinking on your question has me playing with another idea I am going to try to experiement with. First I would get my rows sewn and then figure a way to crochet with fabric strips the rows together. I really like quilting each block separately to the batting only (or paper piecing to batting) as I do not need to use a quilting foot/walking foot of any kind with my little machine.

    Back to the crocheting the rows together; not sure yet HOW I am going to do this but it is playing around in my head! One thing is I would try do this qayg method with the blocks to make up the rows, instead of the row-to-row; block-to-block instead. Then I would have to connect the finished rows. Maybe I will start a post with the process of my search and experimentation?>?>?

    More thinking on alternative ways to connect rows.....could complete rows, connecting blocks sew-flip, and then connect rows with big buttons and buttonholes? Say on an 8" block have two buttons, sewn on by machine, on right side of block and hole on left side. Naturally, this would work better with a scrappy of framed blocks so not to interfere with design. . . just trying to think outside the block, so to speak!

    I'm with you ladies. I love this idea and now I'm trying to figure out how to do complete sections and then join them. I have lots of ideas spinning around. Time for some tests.

    After reading about other QAYG methods, I think you could use one of them for the final join of two quilted halves. Machine stitch the top pieced layers right sides together, but leave the backing folded back out of the way. Trim and whipstitch the batting together, then slip stitch the backing by hand.
