    I posted a picture of my finished quilt in the picture section. I used your method, Jenny and loved it. It's giving me the courage to keep going so I'm currently doing it with a BOM I'm doing. Glad that you're enjoying your winter in AZ!

    Wow everyone has been doing great. Heads up Im gearing up to start another QAYG Tutorial the beginning of April. The only hint I will give is that it will be a twist on the first tutorial we worked on. If all runs smoothly might even have a session ready last week of March. Sew .... If you are interested in following make sure to subscribe to this thread for updates.


    Have and Awesome Day and remember we all are learning together..that's what makes this fun.
    Have an awesome day!

    Hey guys just found this thread and had a quick question- I am doing a DWR for my cousins wedding. Would it be feasible to quilt the rows, instead of just block by block and then join the rows? It works in my head but I have never done a DWR and don't know if I am just being overly optimistic!

    Not sure what a DWR is off the top of my head however you can quilt as you go rows as long as you have two straight edged rows.

    Sorry my bad- I do that to my husband constantly and it drives him nuts. My biggest concern is that it isn't straight- it would have to be curved- LOTS of curves in fact.

    Looking forward to it, Jenni. I haven't been able to sew for a while, but hope to begin again soon. I finished my first QAYG using your method and it worked out great. I have another one ready to assemble...looking forward to your new method, also. Thank you for doing this for us.

    your DWR would be done in blocks so rows would work. You will just have to be careful to pin to make sure it stays straight and your rings match.

    I believe Jenniky taught a technique in our last session with this method.

    Jen, so glad that you are going to do another one. I have one that I will be starting on and want to do the QAYG method, because it's going to be bigger than I usually do.

    Have a great day!!!

    Heya my friend! So good to hear from you. This tutorial will be excellent for quilting large quilts on domestic machines.
    Have an awesome day!

    I'm frantically working on my GS graduation quilt (queen size T-shirt using the BQ pattern--so can't do the QAYG as in the first tutorial we did, but figured I'd do it in thirds QAYG)....need to have it done by the end of April or sooner. So, I will watch this for that part...hopefully it will come along in time. Otherwise, I think I learned enough on that first one to do it in thirds.

    As I was reading new items on the board I came across this QAYG method in the Tutorial section. http://www.quiltingboard.com/tutoria...ml#post5945600

    Thought I would post it over here if anyone is interested and had not come across it. Im still working on piecing the top I will be sharing with the next method of quilting large quilts on a standard machine. Have a great day everyone.
    Have an awesome day!

    Must be too early in the morning -- didn't quite understand how she did this but looking at the final result, it looks similar to how I've done a couple of quilts. From her pics, it looks like she is simply attaching each row to the entire batting & backing. If that's true, I haven't tried this method and would love to understand it better.

    Yep, that is what she's doing. I've seen that method done with fabric strips. This is my first look at doing it with patched rows.

    Oh, I really want to master this! It is so much easier to work on a block, then join it to another block. My biggest problem is in the joining...figuring out how to make the back look as nice as the front.

    Thank you for taking this on! I will try to participate as much as I can.

    I have decided that this is the way to go if I want to have decent looking quilts but don't want to have to pay a longarmer to quilt them. I have tried and tried and just am not good at working with large quilts in my machine. It is so much easier just to work with individual blocks. Here is my latest I have done in QAYG. I absolutely love this quilt. It was so easy to do and I think it came out really good.Name:  BWB2.jpg
