    Ok Jenniky and gang - here are the blocks from last years QB Star BOM. I finally got caught up on all my backlog of Pony Club Blocks, and the two BOM's that I'm in. This is a photo of my Star blocks. They are just stuck up on the display board, but I'm going to sandwich these babies and get started quilting them. I am so excited about getting these out of a drawer and into production.

    Jeannie, I love your blocks, especially since I am partial to the blues you used.

    A question for everyone. The Star Blocks was a BOM on the board here last year. I was checking the squareness of my blocks and they are really varying sizes, not by much, but around 1/4" maybe. I just downloaded the different patterns every month, and they all came from different sources. Should I make all the blocks the same size before I sandwich them, or just wait until after they are quilted? Or should I use a different set of blocks, that are closer in size. If I put a regular sashing on them, I think they could be eased onto the sashing and it would not matter, however, with Jenniky's QAYG method, I think they have to be exact sizes. Help!!

    I would suggest the sectional QAYG method. This way you can piece the top easing the squares onto the sashing and still reduce the bulk of material you are working with as you are quilting the project. Your stars are beautiful..I would not trim them at all if possible.
    Have an awesome day!

    A few days ago my sister gave me some blocks she said that she lost interest in, would probably not finish. She thought I might make more Christmas bags with them. When I got home, I counted them. There were eleven. I made one more and I am going to surprise her at Christmas.

    So what happened to my maple leaves? Oh, Iíll finish them later on. I want to play with these first. I got the quilting done in one day. (well, it was just straight lines). So far, I have one row of three blocks done. Iím really looking forward to getting this done so I can say I officially completed all the instructions.

    Today I start the work on piecing the blocks for the next QAYG project. It will be a variation on the current QAYG method. This project will have a 2.5" Sashing in-between the blocks.

    Part of my personal learning goal is to have a better understanding of battings. When I walk down the aisle of batting at Jo Anns or I am looking at batting online I really am making my selection based on price and appeal.
    So I think itís time I went to Batting SchoolÖ

    The first project I used the 100% polyester very affordable priced batting. As nice as my project finished up, Iím certain the batting will not hold up over time. Iím alright with that because I didnít want to invest a lot of money into a learning project. Now that I feel more confident in my skills I want to use a batting that is considered better quality.

    What I have on hand is Warm & Natural. I took a moment and asked myself why I bought the Warm & Natural batting in the first place. Honestly it was the appeal of the name and packaging. While I am prewashing my fabric for the next project I will spend some time reading up on batting and will share this afternoon what I learned. That of course will also be after I come back from Panda Express for someÖ Yum!!!Ö.. Kung Pao chicken and Chow mein!!!.


    Have an awesome day!

    I'll share what little I know about battin'. First cheap polyester is easiest ta hand quilt & can be quilted up ta 10" apart., but I wanted sometin' that was more natural, so I tried wool. Wow, that stuff is awesome ta hand quilt & machine but must be quilted at least 3 inches apart. It's not as puffy as polyester. It does shrink some, but I like the crinkled look. I havent used any cotton/poly mix battin', except for on a 6 hour quilt. It had ta be quilted at least 4 inches apart. I haven't seen DDIL use it so I don't know how it has lasted. It did look good though. I did have ta go back & add another line o' quiltin' 'cause the 6 hour quilt is 6 inches. I haven't used 100% cotton yet. (I just love the wool!)

    Well, I just discovered that I made a mistake. I cut the front sashing at 1 1/2 inches. I have already put two rows together and am not emotionally prepared to take that all apart, so......I will have to do the rest of it the same. It is actually coming together okay, so I am not really upset. I just have to pay attention better on the next one.

    Jeanie what a lovely quilt this will be--but then I'm partial to the blues, too. I need to check this thread out a little more.

    Boston how are you filling in the extra 1/2 inch of sashing? Just wondered how you were compensating for it. Would you mind sharing a picture. ?? Sounds like you are having some good results.

    Here is what I learned today. I also included a very nice link with a review where an individual did her own experiments with Warm & Natural vs. Mountain Mist Cream Rose.

    I hope you enjoy!


    Batting School : What I learned about Warm & Natural.

    Warm & Natural is packaged as 100% cotton but it is Needle punched into a polyester Scrim so truly the package you are buying is a 87.5% cotton/12.5% poly blend.
    The batting is a needle punched (explained further down) batt that contains tiny plant particles but has no glues or resins within it. The other 12.5% of the batt blend is the Polyester “Scrim” this is a thin man-made woven fiber about the weight of a dryer sheet. With the scrim on one side of the batt the layers of cotton fiber are then bonded together with multiple barbed needles a process known as Needle Punch.
    The Warm and Natural can shrink up to 3% which will give the antique look, however, you can prewash the batting prior to use. The Warm and Natural batting is preferred often for tie quilting because it has up to a 10” inch quilting Interval. It is also used for hand or machine stitching.

    Here's what I've completed on my paper pieced 7" squares. For some reason, the picture of the back won't download for some reason. I've taken 3 different pictures & this site won't download any of them. Just can't figure out why.

    I'm going to find my smaller blocks to add as borders to finish this one. I will spend more time matching the sashing since some of them were a little WONKA! I'll post a picture of it again when I'm all finished.
