Default QAYG question... using the backing pulled to the front to sash

Clear as mud, right??? I am certain I have seen this done, and a gal at guild suggested it as well. You do the normal QAYG but the backing fabric is a particular measurement larger than the front and batting. You seam the blocks together against the batting and front, (thus leaving a large "seam" on the front) and then turn the seam allowances and sew them on the front as a sashing. Can anyone help????

I haven't seen any tutorials, but if I were going to guess, I would say if your block fronts were constructed w/ outside points or patterns that you would lose w/ a bigger then 1/4 inch seam that the over lap should be 1/2 inch. Fold the first 1/4 inch over then the 1/4 remaining would be the normal seam allowance and not interfere w/ your block pattern, this would give you a sashing of 1/2 inch (1/4 on each block). However if your front block pattern has no points or patterning to lose you could make it whatever size you like. I would keep it smaller though, less chance of stretch or pulling.

Oh and I also think it would be easier to "oversize" your back by some "fudge room" over what you decide and trim to the desired size after sewing in place.

I think I would also use a dab (small spots) of elmer's stick school glue to secure it in place before sewing

I saw it done as a demo at a show a few years ago, but if I remember correctly, she cut the back 1" larger on each side so after you sewed together, you would fold 1/2", then 1/2" again and sew to top of block on each side. You would end up with 1" sashing with seam down middle. She was selling a ruler to go with the technique, but don't remember who she was. I'm sure you could cut whatever width you wanted.

I think that is the Fun and Done method. They have a you tube video. I made one of those. It was fun and it was done.

Wasn't "The Cotton Theory" method similar to this?

Go to You Tube and check out Missouri Star Quilts "Quilt as you go any block" and watch Jenny's tutorial and her method of quilt as you go. I just viewed Jenny's tutorial and think I will try it. I have used always used Sharon Pederson's reversible quilt methods in the past and am using her method currently for my son's picture memory quilt. SP' method requires separate sashing cut for the back and the front for each block, plus hand stitching the front sashing on every block and every row across. I still have to do my daughter's picture memory quilt and I think I will try Jenny's method, saves a lot of extra sewing of the sashing. **An important tip to remember when sewing the sashing down be sure you fold the sashing on each block and each row all going in the same direction if you use SP's method otherwise your sashing on the blocks will not line up, and will be staggered and off center.I does give you a different pattern if you ha every other sashing block folded in opposite directions.** I'm anxious to try Jenny's method, Jenny's seems to be like the one that uses the $22.00 ruler set in the Junction fabric shop video listed on this thread posting by mandy rose

I have a question about this method of fun and done. After sewing your strips down to the batting and backing is it o.k. to meander the block also?
