    Wow DeneK! That looks great. I like how you changed the joining/sashing fabric for the main quilt and the borders.

    I'm coming along...just the border left

    I joined this group (at least in my head) when I saw what you were doing because I had a bunch of blocks that I had made into crazy blocks but using my started or half finished blocks as the base of each block.

    Here is my QAYG without borders yet. Hope to finish it completely this week.

    I wanted to add that I made my blocks a bit wonky, so you can see cut off edges of 9 patches. It is because I just kept adding to the block using scraps of fabric til they were over 16" square and then trimmed them down.

    DeneK...your ladies look so prim and proper. You've done a beautiful job.
    Justflyingin...what a creative way to use orphan blocks. I really like how it turned out.

    justflyingin - I love you quilt. I have been doing large scrappy squares for the women at our church. Now I might try to put one together using the QAYG method. Thanks for the inspiration.

    DeneK your quilt for you DIL turned out so beautiful. I love the backing also. You have a beautiful work of art and a lovely Heirloom for your family to hold onto there.
    Have an awesome day!

    As I have caught up on reading from being MIA for a month. I have to say I see a lot of beautiful finished QAYG quilted projects. I'm going to wait until spring comes around again before I embark on any new QAYG techniques. But am always willing to share my experiences and knowledge. I hope you all enjoyed the several projects and techniques we covered this summer. And I thank everyone for their input and sharing as we learned to QAYG together.


    Have an awesome day.

    Today I finished my State Star Quilt. I've had my blocks finished for a while but couldn't decide how to put them all together. I used the Quilt As You Go Block Method & am very happy with the results. I SID in most of the blocks & around the sashing. It is a very heavy quilt so I know it will keep us warm this winter. Here are pictures of the front & back of it.

    Patricia--very pretty quilt. I like the combination of the light and dark backgounds. I have been following the 50 stars thread on and off.

    Patricia - beautiful quilt. Wasn't it fun creating the back too? I love that part of QAYG creativity.

    Jenniky - you take whatever time you need. I, personally, appreciate your hard work by presenting these tutorials. Maybe I can actually get some quilts made while waiting for your next technique LOL

    This technique is a bit harder to work with because you're working with larger chunks of sandwiches but is still do-able.

    I'm only posting this now to show that you can use different techniques to complete the quilt. Besides, I'm quite proud of this quilt since it's 95% made from scraps and not cut-down fabrics. The only fabric I had to buy was the border.
    Wow this is beautiful! I am not sure how you joined the blocks?

    I believe UFOs are like scraps, ferns and dust bunnies. Once you get two, they send spores out into the air and more just happen anywhere the spores meet.
