Tutorial/QAYG # 3/Squaring Up the Blocks

  • Once the block is quilted, you'll need to square it up. In this case, I started with a 15" block, which I am trimming down to a 14" block.
  • Take your time with this, because you want all the blocks to be the same size.
  • I just use the grid on my cutting mat and my rotary cutter.

  • It's amazing how the blocks look, once they are all squared up.
  • Here are two of the blocks, ready to be joined together.

Making the Joining Strips


  1. Thank you so much for demonstrating the OAYG
    method, this is really opening lots of doors for me in my quilting. I want to "break out" of using patterns in my work for a more modern look. Can't wait for the next installment!

  2. Really pretty! I can't wait to see the finished quilt. It's going to be a gorgeous quilt!
    Later today I will post a picture of my QAYG practice block.

  3. I'm glad you are both is a rather liberating way to work.

  4. Thanks so much for sharing. I'm so pleased to have found a more "modern" way of making beautiful quilts.
