    There are 32 quilted blocks & one unquilted. I figure that I will do 'em 5x6 & then do a border. If she wants a border. I'm gonna talk ta the lady & see if she wants ta make pillows or wants ta frame the others.

    Jenniky, sorry I got behind on reading the posts. My Sue and Sam were blocks that were just laying around and wondering what to do with them. Thank you for the nice comments.

    Not sure that my orphan blocks will qualify, since ultimately I hope to create a large curtain to hang from my ceiling to cover/protect my fabric stash wall. However I do have some orphan blocks that I have been toting around for at least 15 yrs and I am now working on how to set them. I have a set plain amish color/black bowtie blocks and a set of attic windows that are in various prints (this was from a very misguided swap group!) and I want to join them together with alot of black fabric (hoping the black will form a miracle). I have tried QAYG in the past and didnt like all the hand stitching on the back to cover my block by block work. Are you doing something different than that Jenny?

    That turned out real beautiful ssnare! The blue really sets off those blocks! Isn't it fun to get one of our UFO's out of the stack!

    Thank you JeanieG. This was a surprise quilt, I had not planned on working on these blocks. I never knew what to do with them. LOL.

    Ssnare, your quilt turned out beautifully! Great job! It's inspiring to see people finish quilts and have large quilts when done! Gives me the urge to continue on after the holidays are done and Christmas sewing and baking are finished. Thank you for sharing!

    Everyone's quilts have turned out beautiful! I still have to post a pic of my first QAYG...the second one isn't finished yet. There just isn't enough hours in the day to do everything...hopefully, I will be able to get back to my quilting soon.

    Whooo Hooo!!! I did it! I finished 2 quilts using the QAUG you introduced us to Jenny. The purple one I started before you published your method and when mine was not coming together too well, I switched in midstream so it has it's own character but my DH likes it. I have a couple more QAUG projects lined up now that I have been successful with these. Name:  photo-049.JPG

    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.

    Oh my goodness, what fabulous quilts! I haven't checked this thread for ages - so much has happened since then! Jenniky, you really got everybody going!

    I've been using a method Leah Day shows on one of her videos and jiggled around with the measurements a bit - so far so good...
