    Part 1

    Step 1: Join 2 white 8"squares and 2 dark squares to make a 4 patch as in photo.

    Step 2: Fold block in half with right sides together. Machine stitch along short edges.

    Step 3: Bring the stitched sides together as in photo making sure the centre seams match.

    Step 4: Stitch this seam leaving an opening of 3" to 4" for turning. Trim 4 corners.

    Step 5:Turn the block inside out through the opening. Push the corners out and press. Measure the block from edge to edge. Mine is 10 1/2". This is the size of the batting.

    Step 6: Carefully insert the folded batting square through the opening. A pencil should help smooth out the batting making sure it goes to the edges. Stitch the opening closed.

    Step 7: Hand or machine quilt the square with lines that are parallel to the seams of the triangle. I use 1" masking tape as a guide. Do a few squares.

    Step 8: Lay out your squares rotating blocks so that a white
    triangle touches a dark triangle. Whip stitch two blocks together.

    You do not have to use white/cream fabric. You can use up your scraps using darks and lights.

    That's a nifty idea! Like a cross between Cathedral Windows and QAYG; I might try it one day! Thanks very much for the tute!

    That is my question to how do you attach them together. I love quilt as you go no tugging the other way.

    Perhaps if a person didn't want to handstitch, a zig zag stitch by machine would work? If you butted the two squares up, like when joining pieces of wadding?

    I think you could use a decorative stitch to join together

    I am sorry to be so dumb, I understand how to put the batting in and how to sew that together but then you only have one block, how do I attatch another one to that one Are there more instrucstions?

    Put 2 squares together making sure one is white and one is dark. Top sew or whip stitch together down one seam. I do pairs and then join into a row. I keep all my seams to the back. The beauty about handsewing is that you do not have to hide your stitches. I also use quilting thread as it is strong. Thanks for all the imput. Zig-zag or decorative stitching would be ideal.

    This looks great, I love that it can involve hand or machine work and easily get the same results.

    So the front and back look exactly the same (except possibly for the "joins" that show on one side only)?

    I am loving this quilt ... and the idea that it combines machine and hand work. Thanks so much!

    I can't wait to try it. If I can master it, it will take the pain out of having a small throat machine. I have it in line behind the Cathedral Window Quilt and Rhonda's Key Chain class. Thank you for the tutorial, that was so nice for you to do that for us.

    Ohhhhh I have another question. You said your blocks (after the folding) were about 10" and yet your picture has lots and lots of blocks (looks like well over 10 rows)...the quilt is huge?

    Last 2 pictures posted were the wrong ones. I am very new at this so bear with me.

    Hello Annclare, thank you for tutorial on reverse QAYG - very simple idea but very practical - good for quick lap quilts or pet blankets let alone large quilts - saves hunting for backing fabric - buy twice as much fabric when on special and save all round!! :thumbup: :thumbup:
