    This is the finished project of a Quilt As You Go. I can see that all the sashings do not exactly match so that is my next challenge to make sure that all matches as I sew them. A learning experience!!!. I love the concept and will do all my quilts in this manner from now on, will just make sure about butting up the squares to match. What do you think? Be honest now!! Used scrap material for the backing and warm and natural for the batting. How easy to quilt in small pieces!! I think that practice is the key word here to make sure that points are visable and sashing matches.

    I think that it's a really pretty quilt. The back is pretty, too. You have given me the courage to try QAYG.

    I love your quilt, your colors, the pattern, all of it. I have been doing the same thing, practicing the QAYG technique and had the same problem, getting my sashings lined up. I think it's something that just takes practice. I have found that once I have the first row on, then if I mark the sashing with a ruler, it goes a lot better. Like on your first row of blocks, after you put the bottom sashing on, mark the sashing where the vertical sashing are and then it works better. I still need practice on that too, but my last one came out a lot better than my first.

    Very good work. It isn't easy to get all the seams to match up. As you practice you will find shortcuts that will help you line things up. Keep at it!

    The pattern is called Hither and Yon and I got it off the internet at "About.com:quilting. It is all on the bias and I think that is why I had such a time making things match. I know that PRESSING is a key not IRONING!! Next time I will be very careful how I PRESS and match. Thanks for your comments.

This is the one I used for the QAYG. It is really easy... Go Slow and read it thru and then start Thats what I did. Next quilt will be better..........

    Love your quilt. I am currently starting my first QAYG project using hand quilting. I hope it turns out as good as yours.

    Beautiful quilt! Really!

    Isn't QUILTING all about PRACTICE? I wonder how many quilters make the same block/quilt/wallhanging more than once?

    It took me a while to find it so when I did I thought I'd post the page here. Look allll the way to the bottom for Quilt as you go directions:
    http://www.edonyourown.com/uoi/printables.html

    I enjoyed looking at the other things (patterns, puzzles) she has on the site too.

    This would be great for me to learn as age make some LARGE item difficult to handle. Any hints on ware I can get some tuts on piecing the squares together. I think maybe I am seeing it on your quilt but any help would be soooooo appreciated. Thanks a whole bunch.
    Good thoughts.
