Two new pics of this process a little further along on this citrus quilt.


Working on borders now w/ a little different QAYG technique. Don't be afraid to combine techniques sometimes different areas of the quilt can be done better w/ different techniques.

Thank you so much!!! I just started FMQ and QAYG is a really good way to not get entirely overwhelmed with the quilting process.
Great tutorial, Kassaundra!

Well it looks like my second set of instructional pics have disappeared, seems like it isn't just a glitch since the non instructional pics are fine, and they were added from the same place in the same way. So it seems to me like they are being removed, so hopefully anyone who is interested can figure it out from the words. I will not be wasting my time adding a 3rd set of pics.

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.

This seems like a really good tute - so annoying for all concerned that the pics have gone!
