Thanks for your inspiration.

    Judy in AZ, Isn't it fun when we rediscover a book that helps us with a project we are currently working on or gives us an inspiration. We look forward to seeing progress pictures of you quilt when you are ready to share it.
    Have an awesome day!

    Looking forward to seeing your pics. Isn't it funny how our lives tend to get busy on their own especially when we already have plans for them... LOL . I'ts all good though and we will all get it done when we get it done. Im really hoping that things will slow back down here at my house so I can focus in on the quilting. I suppose we will see by what I get done today. Did I mention my sewing room was also reorganized this weekend. I added in a new computer table which meant moving around all my other ironing station, machine table, and cutting area. Also replaced the ceiling fan with the small light kit with a huge ceiling light fixture that makes the whole room light up like daylight. It's awesome. So I guess I should stop gabbing and get to sewing... LOL. Post Script.. I also bought a new car over the holiday.. I can't not tell ya all that.
    Have an awesome day!

    Jenniky, Don't be racing around in that new car! Lead feet cause big tickets!~ LOL We have missed you, good to see you back. I am quilting on my Boom 7 blocks and I am so excited. First though I have to do a quilt for a paying customer, and I am using QAYG. It has simplified my life, I can't thank you enough!!

    Surfergirl...great looking quilt!!! I like them all... Really can't wait to start my grandson's graduation T-shirt quilt using fleece on the back & no batting...but it will have to wait till Dec. Heading to N.C. in the a.m., will be there for 3 weeks; then have 6 craftshows the next 2 months. Things should slow down some after Xmas. Will hopefully have access to a computer so I can check in on more of the wondeerful quilts. And keep up with Jenniky...

    Surfergirl, love the quilt. Colors really pop and the quilting - wow. I'm working on a "huge" quilt for daughter right now. Blocks are 16 1/2" and there are lots of them. Also working on a Christmas throw for me.

    But at the moment I'm making salsa and my house smells so good I can't stand it. So will let it cool a little to "taste it" and then put it in jars. The garden is "producing" big time.

    My father is still in hospital. He will have a procedure tomorrow where they take a scope down into his lung/lungs to see what it looks like and also take samples. Then they will determine if everything is okay. He's UPSET because he's still in the hospital and because we found out he is there. Life....

    JeanieG and Charlottemarie - Yes, I had an awesome weekend and I promise no lead feet here.
    Surfergirl - What a wonderful job on your QAYG project. Are you planning to add borders or are you going to bind it as is.?
    VickiM - Wow... sounds like you are going to be very very busy next four months. Make sure to take care of you and have a hot cup of herbal tea or glass of wine with your feet up and a fun quilting magazine along the way.
    Everose - My best thoughts are with you and your Dad, hopefully he will be able to return home soon. Fresh Salsa sounds yummy; I'll be right over with a bag of Tostidos.
    Have an awesome day!

    Surfergirl--what a pretty quilt! The quilting just finishes it off. A block at a time would be a great way for me to practice meandering...I'll have to keep that in mind for next time!

    Looking good SurferGirl.... Isn't it nice to know that as you put your blocks together, your quilt is getting closer and closer to being finished? And it's fun to see the back sides too. Love the nice contrast of your connecting strips.

    I've been side-lined with a broken hot water tank (yuck) and had to empty a lot of my cutting room so nothing gets wet. Luckily my sewing machine is in a different room. Then today, I'm dealing with a major muscle spasm in my shoulder area from my fibro....

    QAYG HOLIDAY Reversible TABLE TOPPER

    Ronda and JeanieG, Actually this QAYG project is a reversible holiday table topper.

    Step #4 I cut two front sashings 5 inches wide by the center length of my squares. I then cut a third longer sashing strip 5 inches wide by 20 inches long. (You will need to adjust these measurements to fit your squares. Im using 9" Squares for my project.

    Step #5 I then cut my back sashing pieces 9 inches wide by the center length of my squares. I then cut a third longer back sashing strip 9 inches wide by 20 inches long. (You will need to adjust these measurements to fit your squares.

    The Christmas blue backside sashing is then folded and ironed in half as we did in the first project/ Click on my blog link in my signature to find the first project tutorial to refer back to.

    Just as we did with our first QAYG you are going to sew these wider sashing strips to your squares. Pinning them front and back and sewing all three sections together with one seam. The seam is always "1/4 inch with unless stated otherwise.

    Jenniky, I have been working on my Stars Quilt while waiting for some fabric to come for my baby quilt border. I had a devil of a time trying to figure out what size the back sashing should be. The front was 2 1/2", and trial and error found that about 4 1/4" worked pretty well, but really should be a little larger. Is there a formula you found or that you have figured out that works for the back sashing? I'm sure this would help a lot of us.

    Now Im ready to sew on the opposite blocks to the top sashing.

    Before sewing them together I trimmed and squared end edges.

    Then I went to the sewing machine and sewed right sides together the front of the yellow top sashing to the right side of the halloween top material.

    I then turned it over and laid the flap down making sure that the edge of the flap lined up with the front seam.


    More to follow in next post set.

    Once I am sure my sashing lines up accurately. I then measured the width from the edge of one seam of batting to the opposite.
    In this case it turned out to be an even 4 inches.

    I cut a 4 x 9 1/4 piece of batting giving my self a little more than necessary on the length to be trimmed later.

    Laying the batting in the sashing canal. I make sure there is no bunching of the batting. It needs to lay nicely in as if it were a puzzle piece.

    I then take large basting stitches down both sides to hold the batting from sliding.

    Now I place a very thin line of glue on the edge of my material to hold my flap in place.

    I seem to have not taken a picture sewing the seam. I used my open foot so that I could clearly see where
    I was sewing and I sewed from the front down the ditch line.

    When I turned it over I had a perfect machine seam.. Ah Ha... I must of done it right.

    With Blue as my top thread and Yellow in the Bobbin, I did a large meander around the poinsettia shapes on the bottom sashing. I made sure I didnt come to close or connect with the side seams.

    I will be using the previous steps to attach these two units together tomorrow with a long piece of vertical sashing. Now Im going to try and write out the mathematical formula I used to figure my sashing on paper. So I can answer JeanieG's question. BBL

    Awesome, Jenni! I never would have thought ta put the battin' in after the front sashin' was sewed on. It makes total sense.
    The control valve went out on my hot water heater last night. DH is replacin' the whole hot water heater tanight. We will never buy a Whirlpool (sp?) again. This is the second one in 2 years. At least it didn't burst!
