QAL - a quick interim post

Hi y'all, just a quick interim post to let you know that I have a couple of guest posts coming up this week talking about the QAYG (quilt as you go) method they are going to use for this quilt.  I will be posting about the method I am using later on in the week but only to tell you not to do it that way because I think I have probably chosen the worst way for the size of block we are making but am too far advanced now down this route to back track.

I will also be running briefly through how I am quilting this quilt but, given that I am remedial in quilting, I am afraid that the benefit of my wisdom is pretty limited.  I am hoping to see a guest post from a much more experienced quilter which will be much more informative than my free motion kindergarten squiggles.

And so, because a post is not a post without a picture, here are two blocks Just made for Amy Badskirt in a new bee I rashly joined, when my bee diary was already slightly overflowing.  I made the first one then had to make a second one as I hadn't followed the instructions properly and had done the first one wrong.  Amy very kindly said she could probably still use the first one but I think she was being kind.  Hadley Flying Rocket kindly pointed out that this one looks like a level crossing.

Another block for Amy

  9. Is a level a railroad crossing? That's what the top one reminded me of and since I need to make one, I love it!

  12. Ooh I have noticed you are back to your old ways of getting others to do the work for you. Memories of my difficult childhood sharing a room with you came flooding back.
