Baby Quilt From "Demo Blocks"

Every time I demo QAYG techniques, I'm left with lots of lovely quilted blocks. Last October, I came up with the bright idea of using colours that work together so that eventually, I would end up with a finished quilt....all be it a mixed bag of QAYG techniques. I am of the school of thought that mixing several techniques adds interest to the quilt.

As these blocks were created rather quickly....(during the workshops or demo, improv is the way to go). I used the following techniques (Just look under tutorials at the top of the page for tutorials on all the different techniques):
  • Stitch 'n Flip
  • QAYG Borders
  • Joining with Wide Strips
  • Joining with Narrow Strips
  • Spiral Quilting
So, four or five separate demos later.....I have enough to make a baby quilt.

 Quilt Back....
 Joining the rows...
So much easier with a little Elmer's Glue

And, I have a lovely little great niece to give this quilt to.....
