Wow! I love your way of doing this. I'd have never guessed QAYG if I hadn't already know it was.
Thank you for sharing!
Regards,
Kif

I have the main body finished now. I am working on the borders. I will piece each border (all 8, 2 top, 2 bottom, 2 left, 2 right front and back) separately. Then add them in sets (front and back) sewing right sides together adding the batting and then quilting the longwise of the border w/ a walking foot. I will add pics to show that process when I get the borders finished. But for now here is the finished main body w/o borders.

This is wonderful, Kass! You can't even tell where the sashing is from the front.... Thanks for lots of pictures. My old brain can follow pics better than words!

I'm going to try your wide sashing method on my next 12-block lap quilt, to make it a little bigger. That's what I'm doing with my next Boom blocks.

Thank you!

You're welcome sewbiz. This boom quilt I am currently working on I wanted more sashing on the front then on the back so I am working out a way to do the qayg in strips only, w/ the short sashing already sewn into the strip on the front and using the long sashing for both front and back.

I just "discovered" this post, the sad thing is that the tut. pictures will not open up. However, I am able to view the finished quilt top. I will have to try reading between the lines! lol

Me too. I tried clicking on the little picture icons underneath each process but nothing happens.

Perhaps someone can help me.

A moderator contacted me about the pics, neither she nor I know why the pictures did this. She has agreed to edit the first post to indicate a new post w/ the pictures if I can find them. (I may have deleted them off my card, thinking I didn't need them anymore.)

Seems my original pics disappeared. I have made a new set of pics since I couldn't find the originals. This set is joining the rows instead of the individual blocks, hopefully they will make sense to you. This quilt has more of an obvious sashing, so you can do this method on both an obvious sashing quilt and a "hidden" sashing like my En Provence. My grey sashing fabric is not quilting cotton so is a little more unruly the quilting cotton works up perfectly so don't let the bumps and puckers of the grey fabric discourage you from trying this method, my grey fabric is nearly upholstery weight. Oh and I don't think I mentioned this anywhere but a WALKING FOOT IS A MUST, seriously don't try it w/o a walking stitch.


Showing the individual pieces


Trimming the joining edges


Folding over the 1/4 seam on one long edge of the FRONT sashing


Pinning the quilted piece front and back sashing all raw edges


The 1/4 inch seam through all layers


Folding and pressing the back sashing up while keeping the front sashing back and out of the way.


Just another view for clarity (hopefully)


Back of the next quilted piece to the back sashing right sides together pin in place


The seam sewn, all seams pressed towards the sashing, back is now one piece.


inserting the sashing batting into the sashing inside the seams for no added bulk


fold over front sashing matching folded edge to seam stitching line, pin matching points. This seam needs to be top stitched, the other side doesn't NEED it but I generally sew both for continuity. It will need some quilting since the batting isn't stitched in yet.


Here is the back


and the front.
