    I have done a number of things with this method. It works well and I thought the pattern had good picture directions as well. I did not find it hard to do.

    Good Luck

    I've not done one of these, but it looks fun! I've seen other QAYG quilts and I'm interested in how this one might differ. I found other good information and ideas on this site; thanks for posting!

    My first quilt book was Reversible Quilts by Anita Murphy. The instructions were fantastic and I was a complete beginner and made a beautiful quilt. My DD still loves that quilt and it has been on her bed for years. It's a quilt as you go method. If you can find her book, buy it!

    The tute on quiltworks.com is the same as in Reversible Quilts by Sharon Pederson. I use it all the time and have learned to adapt the measurements as I need. Saves a lot of time and it is easy to do a large quilt. I recommend it.

    I use the Sharon Pederson method myself. I prefer to ditch stitch the seam cover down from the front side of the quilt. I use Elmer's School Glue and my little craft iron. I put a small, thin stripe of glue along the stitches, pull the seam cover just over the glue and use my craft iron to dry the glue so it sticks. Then I flip the quilt. Stitch in the ditch from the top and voila, all done!

    My friend made one of these for her first quilt, it turned out very well and went quite fast. She followed the directions (same web-site) and didn't have a bit of trouble. Hope this helps.

    I took a Fun n Done class a while back and liked it the most of what I've seen. Not a fan of QAYG, but it was fun to learn something new. I plan on trying it again with an embroidered quilt I'm going to start soon.

    I plan on getting Sharon Pedersons book or CD.

    I have done some as baby quilts...My instructions are called "FLIP and SEW". It is complete except for the binding. You can make it any size you want really and is done more or less like "Courthouse Steps". You start with 3 , 3 and a half inch blocks for the center (cut front, back and batting in 3 1/2" squares) Layer and stitch together...measure top and botton edges of those blocks and then cut the next two blocks to fit...then go to the left side and the right side of that group and etc..... really easy and a good way to use your scraps of fabric and batting.
    I would be glad to add attachment of quilt pics if I could figure out how!

    One of my very first quilts was a reversible quilt. It went great and I loved the fact that I had two quilts at the same time. Good method!

    I also took a fun and done class one time. Unfortunately, there were several people who knew almost nothing about quilting or sewing, so class was slow. I never finished the quilt, but I plan to someday. It was pretty easy, one I got the hang of it.

    I have enjoyed making Fun and Done quilts - which are quilt as you go. These are wonderful quilts that are going to be utility quilts. They are also great for baby quilts - due to the fact that I want them to be loved and used. They really are fun to make, and there are several different patterns from which to choose.

    Use a similar method but modified it because of the bulk at the seams. Cut away the batting and it seemed to do better and lay flater.
