    Here are two rows sewn together on my fun and done, it is really quite easy and I found that using my zipper foot I couldsew the rows close to the batting.

    Is this a quilt as you go pattern? Where can I find a tutorial or the directions? By the way, love the colors!

    LOVE the colors! I keep telling myself jump in and give it a try. I think you have inspired me to try it. Can't wait to see it all done. I think as soon as I finish my current WIP I will have to try a QAYG.

    Some things I have found that make it work a little better, Use the spray basing to hold the batting in place on the backing, Start piecing in the middle of each square, and use the zipper foot or whatever foot will let you stitch closest to the batting when putting the squares and rows together. Wala! pretty easy and it is fun!

    You are doing a beautiful job on it. And it's going so fast too. I can't wait until they ship mine! They were out when I ordered, so I have to wait. Love the job you're doing!

    I made my template, I am cheap and don't want to spend the money! LOL I just cut a chunk of plastic cutting mat. I find that floor tiles make great templates. The practice blocks I used a square picture frame.

    It looks great so far. Can you share the measurements of you blocks, strips and what the sashing came out as?

    Yours looks so good for the sashing and I really don't care for many sashing patterns...

    Thanks! Keep us posted.

    The backing block in 10 1/2 inches, the inside batting block is 8 inches so that leaves the frame size 1 1/4 all the way around. When you sew it together you get a sashing of 1 1/4 inches. You could make it wider by making your frame template wider. I cut my strips to 2 inches so it gives me a 1 1/2 inch strip when done. I did not follow a pattern just the method. By making it 7 blocks wide and 8 long I should end up with a twin size quilt about 52 12 x60 or 8 rows would be 52 1/2 x67 1/2.
    Clear as mud?

    i agree with up north all the way!!

    AND think out of the box (so to speak): if you make your own template, it doesn't have to be square. it can be a rectangle. or a brick.

    I have the perfect fabrics to give this a try. I will also make my own templates using a 12 1/2" ruler and a home made 10 1/2" square of plastic that my DH will cut for me.

    Your fun and done is just beautiful. Love the colors. Thanks for the tip about the zipper foot. I will have to try that.
