    Neat quilts. Good Job. I noticed you live in Arcadia. I lived there during WWII, I was only about 10 at the time. I went to First Avenue Elementary School. We lived at 1017 S. Second Avenue just off Duarte. I imagine everything has changed by now. I left there in 1947. I was a TomBoy and rode my horse all over the place. Used to be that Double Drive had a horse riding trail all the way up to Santa Anita Oaks. Funny how I can remember those things and some days can't remember what I had for dinner the night before!!
    Families are like old quilts....although they tend to unravel at times...each can be stitched back together with love.

    Lovely fabrics and your joining sashing is so thin!, lots of skill. I have never attempted but you did a splendid job.

    Really nice. I really like the sashing QAYG method, it really does make it reverseable!

    What is the procedure for putting on the inner and outer borders. I want to make a quilt like this one but cannot figure out how to get a border on that has no seams. Could you please make a tutorial for me.

    Very Nice Job...Janie,

    I am wondering if your enjoyed the process.. I plan on doing a QAYG for a King Size quilt -- wondering if I can finish it to the end. Am I correct that you add the boarder after joining all your blocks?

    It wasn't too hard. The hardest part was the borders because I was doing it without any patterns. I have put a totorial of this on my blog.

    The inner border was the sashing that is used to put my blocks together. I put on the outer blocks after the rest of the quilt was made. I have done a totorial on my blog.
