So if you ever doubt that you are reaching people I am living proof that you are. I am in Eastern North Carolina. I have been quilting for about 6 years and come from a long line of quilters.
Thanks for letting me share my excitement.
And this one from Chris with a link to a flip and sew assembly, which is really CLEAR and wonderful, plus the following link with the connector strip sewn to the back and the larger wider strip topstitched to the front, which is how I USED TO DO IT.
It's so great that you're showing other QAYG projects! I got distracted from sending my QAYG story sooner, but today's prompt got me thinking about it again.
I want to specifically thank you and Marianne from Quilting Edge for explaining QAYG techniques that make so much more sense than what I was doing!
Here's the link to my most recent blog post for my current project - a queen sized quilt that is going SO much better than it ever could have!
I've also used the thin connector strip method on this quilt: http://www.overthemoonarts.com/2011/08/29/optic-squares-qayg-completed-and-and-qayg-tute/
I don't think I'll ever go back to quilt 'rassling again!
Take care and thank you again -
Both of these methods avoid all hand sewing, which is a boon, and can be worked into the design so unnoticeably. And I love that pledge not to go back to quilt 'rassling again! I hope you'll find two orphan blocks and try out the narrow connector strip join for yourself. Then let me know if you fall in love with QAYG.
