( When I want to sash the rows together, I add the sashing to one side & then I lay one row on top of the first row, tops facing each other & aline it to the sashing. Then I fold down the top row just past the sashing & line the sashing that is between the blocks up & pin then fold back down & sew. Never had trouble with them lining up this way. Hope I explained it okay )

Hi Halo.. I'm not understanding what your doing here.. is there any way you can show us how you do it. I'm a picture kind of person... lol..

Lovely quilt.

Last summer, I took a quilting class. We made a sampler quilt using a QAYG method but different from the one you used. We would quilt the top just to the batting and then attach the finished rows together before adding the border and backing. Once i added the backing, they had me quilt around each block and around the borders using SID. I have a couple of pictures. The top two pics are the top row and bottom row so you had to have extra batting to add the rest of the lattice. Its explained more in Eleanor Burns book Quilt in a Day.

That is an interesting method, Quiltingnd, and is one I looked at when deciding which method to use. I ended up using the method shown by Leah Day on one of her videos, but I had to adapt it so I could do it on vintage machines - straight stitch only - and not have to do yards and yards of hand sewing. It's all here on this blog post

The limiting factor for me (and no doubt, for lots of quilters) is space. I haven't got a sewing room as such, just an area at the side of the dining room for storage, and I do all my sewing either on a treadle or on a hand machine on the dining table. I have to keep clearing things out of the way so the family can eat. This is why the QAYG method shown by Leah Day was so wonderful for me - you can easily store the individual quilted blocks in a pile until you have them all finished, and then assemble them to put the whole quilt together.

I'm glad people like the pegs tip. I'd love to hear from anyone who has tried it.
