This time I am writing a post is about Sheila’s quilt, a QAYG project. A project were all pieces are quilted separately and later sewn together with a zigzag stitch. To cover the zigzag we use a thinner decoration strip sewn first on the back and a wider strip sewn on the front. Sheila has pieced and quilted this piece herself. She only asked me to sew the last two long strips because the quilt is getting heavy.
This quilt has 12 blocks, each block is 20″ x 20″. The quilt top is now 60″ x 80″ and it has a perfect size to fit the mattress. The next phase is to add borders for the drop. We have calculated the exact measurements so that the drop borders just about touch the floor. Sheila has used for this QAYG quilt 3 charm packs and a light green solid to make the broken dishes block. Each block has 9 broken dishes units and is finished with a blue border.
A colorful quilt back. This is QAYG magic!
