QAYG - it's pretty fun!

QAYG - stage 1

Much of my time is spent quilting these blocks (edited to add: these are my Bloggers Block-a-Palooza blocks, there are earlier posts about them). It is really fun to be able to spin them around and change the angle without a care to how much of the rest of the quilt has to move.

And here is the back.

This one has flying geese.


And one more.

QAYG - stage 1

I am hoping to get my nerve up to do some interesting free motion quilting, not just straight lines.

I am reading tutorials about how to join the blocks, I will post links to a bunch of excellent ones when I start the joining process.

There are other interesting projects over at Quilt Story, you should have a look.

I want to see how they are joined up too! This is awesome. My little machine does not cooperate for quilting of anything larger than a doll quilt.

These look like your Block-a-palooza blocks- this will be so cool as I was pondering how to quilt mine now that the top is all pieced together.

Very nice blocks...love the colors you use!

Nice quilting! And so much easier with smaller blocks than with a whole quilt. I'd love to know how you end up joining them together. I've tried several quilting as you go methods and still haven't found one to use a second time, but someday I will.
