Default Lemon Squeezy QAYG - my version for DGS

This is my version of Lemon Squeezy, McCall's Quilter's Workshop, Autumn 2011. This is for my oldest DGS, using batiks. My first experience with them and OMG! I love them. The center is QAYG so it went very quickly but I needed to add a border for length and width. Not so quick. I determined how much I needed, added the front and back border individually and then inserted the batting. Then prayed real hard it would all come together - well almost. I love the center and read somewhere when you have one "sour" fabric in the mix they will work, boy is that so true. Quilt completed in 2 weeks working full time.

it is actually the tie dye print - I didn't think it would work (bf aka "the enabler") chose it and somehow when it was put together it does. It is that one print that is yuck when choosing but awww when sewn in.

I'm just gettig started and like the quilt as you go technique. I'm working on a QAYG Log cabin now with Delectible Mountains border. We'll see how it goes. Have a safe and peaceful Thanksgiving.

What a Lucky DGS to recieve your beautiful quilt. I can hardly believe that it took you such a short time to make it. I bet it really feels good getting it done. Keep up the good work!!
