    QAYG Flip N Sew With Pictures

    I mostly piece 40x60 tops for cancer patients. And I got really tired of the look of tied quilts so this winter I tried QAYG, sewing the quilting seam at the same time I sewed my rows together. I don't know how to post words with the correct picture so I hope you can follow along.

    1. I sew my individual blocks into rows, but don't sew the rows into one top. Generally I like my blocks to be 6-7 inches. I realize there is no vertical quilting lines using this method, but me and others in our quilt guild have decided that horizontal stitching will suffice for the purpose intended.

    2. I press my backing fabric and mark the vertical center point of the quilt. I align the backing fabric with the batting, with the backing fabric right side down.

    3. I figure out the vertical center point of the rows and lay the first row down on the batting at the vertical center point of the backing. This row is laid right side up. I lay the next row right side down and pin, pin, pin with fork pins, matching seams.

    4. I fold the excess batting and backing fabric and sew a horizontal seam, backstitching at the beginning and end of the row. When finished, I flip over the top row and press. I turn the package over and press from the back. I also press "ahead" the width of the next row to ensure that the batting and backing are not bunched.

    5. I continue to add rows up and down until all rows are added. I then trim off the excess and baste around the perimeter of the quilt.

    6. Add binding.

    Thanks for the explanation and the photos. It is a great tutorial.

    I've wondered if this would work, and obviously it does. They are great quilts.

    I bought the Clover fork pins at a local quilt shop. I am teaching this method at our guild retreat in April and someone in the group did an online search and found plenty of places that sell them. Amazon has them.

    Glad for your tut on QAYG. I have one I have partially done whichI need a question answered on before finishing. I liked the idea, but the seams of the blocks are showing. The long armer said I would need to put a piece of backing over the entire back to remedy the seams of the blocks.
    Is that my best bet or can you suggest something else. I thought of having done French Seams, but you still have the seams showing.
    Please pm me so I don't miss your response.
    Mariah.Thanks.
    Have a wonderful Quilting Day, make it your way!

    Thank you for sharing with us your tut...I want so much to use this method, but until I read your tut and saw your pictures, I was at a loss how to do it...the fork pins, do you use these just with your QAYG projects? Again, your tut really helped me..

    Mostly I just use the fork pins for QAYG and for adding the binding. Thanks for all the wonderful comments. I taught this technique at our quilt retreat over the weekend and my group loved it. We typically donate between 125 and 150 quilts each year to the local hospital cancer clinic.

    I do this too, and love the method! I use fusible batting (Hobbs 80/20 fusible) and once the horizontal stitching is done, and the pieces are fused, I do some FMQ on the rows. It's great to get the whole quilt done so quickly. The method can also be adapted to make quilts with borders.

    I have thought about doing the same thing to speed up the finishing process of charity quilts. Have you tried to go back and do any top quilting? I may try this on a project I'm currently working on. Thank you for posting the photo's.
