    Thank you for giving us this tutorial. It is so clear and easy to understand. I have always wanted to do a "quilt as you go" quilt, and this tutorial has motivated me to finally make one. I made one of these strip quilt tops a couple of years ago, and had it quilted by a long arm quilter. She did a great job on it, but of course it was a bit expensive. With a QAYG, when it's done, it's done, and I like that. Thanks again for posting this easy to follow tutorial

    I love scrappy quilts and this is a stunner. I often use this method of piecing together quilt as you go. However I do have problems getting the "sashing" ie connectors to line up when I sew the strips together. Your is so precise, do you have any tips on how to line them up. If the connector strips are high contrast as in yours, misalignment really stands out.

    The only advise I can give you there is to match and pin. It's the only part of the quilt I pinned. I hate to use pins because I always end up sticking myself a few times....ouch!! If you look, and your sashing is a contrasting color, you can see it between the layers....Wish I could give you more help!

    I MADE A MISTAKE!!!!!
    When I was typing the part about the sizes to cut the front and back joining strips, the first time I correctly said the back strip is cut at 1 1/8". A few sentences later I said 1 1/4" which is incorrect....
    It was too late to edit when I discovered the mistake. I hope this doesn't cause anyone a problem!
