QAYG, Boys Quilt, and Guild Raffle Quilt
Quilts are getting MADE during this "staying at home" business. I'm using the "twin strips" method for this QAYG, a small boy's quilt - my blue fabrics lean towards "nautical", but that word is seldom heard of in western Nebraska, so I bought one yard of this cute TRACTOR print, the only fabric purchased. I made 4 blocks at a time, and that also used adequate but unloved FQs for the back. Backing and batting were cut 8 in. and the block finishes at 7.5. Setting is 6 x 8 blocks, a good size for toddler. I'll start the sashing units tomorrow. My method of hiding stitches in the ditch is improving with each quilt.
