QAYG Part #3

 So...a while back I started a QAYG project. (Quilt As You Go) I learned this technique from Mariann over at The Quilting Edge. She has a great tutorial on this method. Above is Part #1.
Here is part #2.   I added the left side. I love this method because I can plan each addition , then quilt it as I'm going along....then when I get to the end of this quilt..it will only need a binding!!! Very cool indeed!!!!

.....so, I realized that I have been sooo into my mixed media arts of late..that I have been missing quilting:):) So, I have ...oh I don't know....40ish UFO's sitting around. I finally decided to get some of them done...instead of starting something new. Here, I pulled this project out and did another section Part #3.
 Planning my colors and ideas:):)
 I am sooooo loving the sound of Momma Nina's hum:):) I have missed it:):)
 Even ....My Bella got into the deciding what to do next phase...!!! :):) "I like it MOM!"
 Cutting out my batting for the quilting parts:):)
Then I sew the top piece and the backing piece to the quilt.

..then Zig- Zag the batting on......

                                                  ...Then spray baste the pieces down.....
...and then machine quilt as you like.....

 ...here you can see me at the machine....I always add extra on the edges..so when I am done quilting ...I can trim it all up to match:):)

 ...the back.... the 3 pieces are the 3 pieces I have added on so far.... I really like this idea. It leaves the quilt nice and flat..no added bulk:):)
                                                                               

...and then part #3....
Very happy with it so far...will be working on the next part when I stop writing on this post:):):)
Happy sewing...Ya'll
Much love- Sandie

Oh no I think you missed a color. Oh wait...I see it...yup...all the colors are there. Whew. You had me worried for a minute.

Donna said...

I really want to try this method. The joining of parts had me worried - I think this is the best visual of that part of the process I've seen. Makes me feel more certain of giving it a try. This is an awesome quilt! Love all the different parts and how they combine. Keep going! Hi Bella! :-)
