    My version of fun/done qayg

    I have a baby boy shower coming up and the dad is an avid hunter/fisher/camper etc. I had this cute camping material in my stash. I love snowball quilts and decided to make a baby quilt. I thought I'd give the fun and done way a try but don't have the templates. I used my Accuquilt 8 1/2 inch square to cut the backing material and the 6 1/2 square to cut the front material and batting. I used the 2 1/2 inch triangles for the corners and this is what I have so far. I'm loving it. So fast! This is just a practice piece to decide how I wanted to quilt the block. Haven't made up my mind on that yet. Will work on doing the "real" quilt tomorrow on my day off.

    What do you all think of my fun/done version?

    Hugs!

    Looks like a perfect quilt for that baby boy. Cute! I like your stitching on the QAYG.

    I love it! I'm going to have to give this a try. Never thought of using a snowball block, but it looks GREAT!!

    I saw a demo of that technique at a quilt show. They were selling a ruler for that. But the did strips and panels for top square. Like that you did the snowballs and used the decorative stitch to stitch down the sides. Looks a lot better than the demo one.

    It looks great! Can't wait to try it for myself -- never seen the snowball block as a QAYG before -- very clever.

    That is the nicest QAYG technique I've seen. Love the edge finish. Makes it looks like it belongs. That fabric was a real find. Love it. . . and so will Dad/baby-boy who receive it.

    That is adorable! You know the dad is really going to appreciate the way you included his interests-ones I'm sure he is dreaming of sharing with his son-in creating this one of a kind gift for them!! How thoughtful of you!
