    I have used the Betty Cotton Theory technique to assemble squares like this. It works well and adds a touch of texture and design. Good luck! This is surely a very important project that you have been trusted with and will mean so much to both the bride and her father.

    I have used the Betty Cotton theory technique and it was pretty easy. Good luck on your project. You must be a wonderful person for the husband to trust you with this precious quilt.

    Thanks so much for asking this question, I just found a quilt my DM started yrs ago, it is a QAYG also & have been trying to figure out how to join the blocks. now all I have to do is select the color for the sashing. Thanks everyone.

    This will be a wonderful gift for the daughter getting married. What a great thing you are doing for her.

    The quilt as you go method will be perfect for finishing this quilt.

    You might also check this out, do not know a web site, but Sharon Pederson has a book "Reversible Quilts" Two at a Time. I made a reversible quilt using her method for my son last Christmas.

    There are two sites that demonstrate two to three different ways to join this type of block. Anne the Gran contributor demonstrates a method called 'stipple' on You Tube and shows how to join the blocks. Also, Sewing with Nancy has a method that is called 'Cotton theory Quilting'. Both Methods are very good and well demonstrated and you will be introduced to new products at the same time.

    That looks like Georgia Bonesteel's lap quilting from the 80's. You would quilt block by block, then sew the top squares to gether, one by one, and then close the lining with hand stitching. GOOD LUCK!!!! :lol:

    Is all the quilting out to the edge? If not you can put the 2 blocks together and sew just the top by machine and then hand sew the wadding and back by hand. How many square are there? Can you put all of the blocks side by side and let us see. We may be able to help you decide what to do then.

    Because the backing fabric looks larger than the blocks have you thought of Fun and Done on Bayside quilting's web sight. It is easy to do. www.baysidequilting.com look under fun and done. They have tut for it. K
