QAYG Class

Today I am teaching a QAYG (quilt as you go) class at a quilt shop in another town. I taught this class at my LQS before it closed so I just needed to refresh my memory of the steps earlier this week.

My mom sent me a bunch of floral nine patch blocks some time ago. I pulled them out and layered them with batting and backing.

Then I started quilting them simply.

For this quilt I will be joining the blocks with strips on both the front and back. This is my favorite QAYG method, although I cover three different methods in my class. I have found that one method is not appropriate for every quilt so it is good to cover all the methods in the class. Then students can decide what will work best for them and their projects.

Beautiful blocks. Love your quilting on the block. I hope you will show us a couple blocks joined and quilted. Love to see how you do that.

I wish I were near enough to take your class. The only method that I have used for QAYG is with strips front and back. I am curious about the other two methods.
