QAYG, in Blue
QAYG = quilt as you go, in case that word is new to you. It's been a month since I started a QAYG, in PINK. PINK was delivered to the intended recipient a few days ago, so the last few days, I've been working on this one in BLUE. Some of these fabrics are mine, some purchased from a Scrap Bag from Hawthorne Fabrics and some backs are from the 14 lb. box of novelties from a blogging friend. I made half the blocks with white/plain backs and half in novelties/scrappy, and laid it out with alternate blocks.
The only "order" is that white strip and blue handkerchief print laid diagonally down the near center. My plan is to have 6 x 8 blocks. (It's turned sideways here). Top row has the sashing connected. Attaching the narrow sashing is faster than it looks and so far, all the back stitches are exactly where I wanted them, not sloppily on and off the sashing but next to it. Yeahhh! I did one row of 8 blocks at one sitting of ?? less than an hour. Fabrics are little horses, horseshoes, deer, a few foxes, dot, plaids, and I added a few turquoises to keep it from getting blah. These blocks are 7.25 in. My leftover batting scrap supply is greatly diminished.
