    I finished mine. Completely. It's done!

    Here it is. A truly "orphaned" blocks challenge. I did make them into larger 16" blocks first by adding scraps around them, then trimming them wonky.

    Here is a link to the blog where you can see one ongoing project (368 blocks project) and a recently completed project using QAYG, a wallhanging.

    I am also thinking about locating a UFO project I started a couple of years ago, where I didnt know ANYTHING about QAYG and kind of got lost. This would be a great thread to share that with!
    Jenniky...THANKS so much for this thread. I'm just on page four so I will continue to read.

    And this blog is AMAZING

    Probably everyone will especially like the back! I made it reversible on purpose....because I wasn't sure if the front would be a big hit. That patchwork on the back is a cheater print.

    Don't have any in progress but one recently finished baby quilt...great to practice FMQing. Quick and easy ... But this was not with sashing but the other method, similar to fun and done.

    Have done with sashing also. Both methods are great!

    JeanieG your BOM's turned out beautiful I can see why you are so pleased. Do you have any other orphaned blocks you are going to work with? I have three of the QAYG's from my orphaned squares close to finish and will continue to work on them through the winter. Then I will be ready to lead us in to and adventure into another new QAYG method this coming spring.

    Keep posting your projects as you complete them everyone. Inspiration is the fodder of productiveness. LOL Ok I just made that up.. don't know if it translates.. LOL
    Have an awesome day!

    Your wall hanging is so very cute. Were Sue and Sam orphaned blocks or did you start them new as a planned QAYG project? Either way you have a wonderful wall hanging there.
    Have an awesome day!

    I posted a question on a new thread about QAYG a few weeks ago and then found this thread. I am so glad I did! I have read every single post. I am doing the Craftsy BOM and wanted to try the QAYG method on that. I just finished my last block and have cut some of the backing squares, but need more fabric. Once I get all of my backing fabric I am starting on this with the help of this thread. I love this forum and all the people who so generously offer their time and talent to help others. Thanks.

    JeanieG,

    I love your quilts! Both of them. You chose nicely on the sashing colors too...makes them look really neat.

    Thank you for the kind compliments everyone. I am pleased with them, and so glad to get them out of my UFO stack!
