    Has anyone here ever made a "Fun & Done" quilt using Batting Buddy templates?

    I have the template and have made some blocks, but haven't put them together yet. If it works will be a great idea. Using up my scraps too.

    I watched the tute on Bayside Quilting. I've been wanting to do a QAYG. This one looks like it might be fun & simple enough for me to do. I just haven't got the hang of free motion quilting yet!

    Thanks for the post. I just ordered one. I think it'll be great that the cutting guides for the blocks are already the right size. I did a qayg a couple of years ago and had a hard time getting the batting the right size...of course, I picked a weird size for the blocks, which didn't help at all. Yea! Can't wait for it to come. I have a baby quilt on hold since I didn't know what I wanted to do. Think I'll try this. I think this would also be great for cutting out blocks/batting for rag quilts.

    I have the fun and done chit chat pattern but haven't tried it yet. If anyone has tried it I would be interested to hear how it went. Pictures would be great too!

    Thanks everyone! I think I'll try one. Now, will it be the Easy Diamonds or Chit Chat? Decisions, decisions!

    :) Hey I love this tool and the patterns look like they are nice. I am going to try it too. That is a nice site ... thanks for the heads up.

    p.s.) I had my next door neighbor, kitty over for tea this afternoon and showed her the video, she is going to try it too! LoL! She belongs to a couple quilt groups and I am sure she is going to spread the word.

    Could someone who bought the templates measure them and tell us the dimensions? They would be easy to make.

    Well, I just ordered the fun and done patterns and I decided to just go for it and order the templates too. I figure by the time I buy the plastic and try to cut it out perfectly and probably ruin it, I will be wishing I had just bought them. I'm sure it would be possible to make the quilt without the templates, but I'm all for making things easier and quicker. Can't wait for the order to come so I can get started. If anyone has made any of the fun and done patterns, please post some pictures. I would love to see one completed. I already had the chit chat pattern and I ordered the easy diamonds and zip strip.

    I'm trying the Fun and Done method on the quilt I am making for my Mama. The quilt has 16 inch blocks, so I have to modify everything. I love the look of it. My block is traditional, so really all I'm doing is adding the 1 inch all around and hand quilting. I'll post pics as soon as my camera battery arrives in the mail!

    I was thinking after I read the last post that you could use this method on any quilt block as long as it would look ok with a sashing. I think of all the qayg methods I've been researching, this is my favorite. I like the fact that you end up with a plain back. I don't want sashing on the back of my quilt. Can't wait to try it.

    In thinking this method thru I wonder about the accurate sewing on of the top fabric. You cannot go past the batting when you sew on the design. So you have to be very accurate. Yet you trim the top fabric after you finish the block so how can you see not to sew past the batting? This worrys me. You would have to go by feel.

    Hmmm... That's true. Hadn't thought of that. But, if you were doing traditional blocks with quilting, either machine or hand, you could make your batting the same size as your block and the backing an inch bigger. Then quilt it. I think that would work. Need to do one and see. With the fun and done you are quilting as you piece which is different than what I was thinking about.

    Can't wait for my patterns and tool to come! I ordered from Quilters Warehouse.
    First time ordering there. Hope it's quick. Prices seemed about the same as the other places.
