I mostly do my own version of a stitch and flip. I figure how to divide my quilt into rows or columns, prejoin my pieces into columns then stitch the columns one at a time to the batting / backing. If my columns are narrow enough that is all the "quilting" I do if they are wider or I have an idea of what I want to quilt I do additional quilting in the added new column before adding the next one. I nearly always have a pieced back but if my quilt is narrower then 60 inches or I am using fleece I keep it whole and start in the center working my way out to each side, only 30 inches at most in in the throat space of the sewing machine that way. There is no hand work ness. this way like some qayg has.

Here are a few pics of some I have done



front and back of same quilt



front and back of same quilt



front and back of a solid fleece backed one



front and back



another front/back of a solid fleece backed quit

Those are just a few

There are other techniques I have figured out when this one won't work, but this is the easiest and will do most types of quilts.

I am making one like this right now. I have made lots of them.

I quilt in sections and got plenty of help from Marti Michell's "Quilting in Sections," which offers several ways to quilt parts of quilts before putting them all together.

I finished my first QAYG quilt only a couple months ago (if that). I absolutely love how it came out. Since the entire process was new to me I did everything with the quilt using things I had never used before. I did a lot of FMQ, Stencil drawn designs, I used Elmer's School Glue to do the basting. This was the biggest new thing to me all the way around and will influence my quilting for years to come. I see me doing many more QAYG projects. The quilt I did was a twin size and I am using it on my bed right now as an extra quilt on the bed just for me.

I did a Mariner Compass 12" squares. Top, batting and backing were quilted together. Left a margin around the square and when I had them all done I joined them. Backs were sewed together on machine and top was joined by hand with a ladder stitch. I ended up with a king size quilt for my daughter. Came out very nice.

I did a QAYG several years ago with Leah Day. At that time she had a block of the month and each month we did a different block. So not only did we learn to FMQ different patterns but she gave very good instruction on how to quilt as you go. I don't know if the pattern is still available but it was a lot of fun and turned out really good. Mine was hanging on the wall for quite some time. Have to say the FMQ was not the best but if you didn't look close it was fine.
