In an early post I started designing a pattern to make a quilt for my son’s Year 7 teacher as a going away present. I started out with a traditional pattern and ended up designing this quilt in less than 5 minutes.
I am using a very simple log cabin block, QAYG method and solids from various designers. I always have to use red.
The QAYG method is very simple. Cut a 9 1/2″ red backing square and 1 x 7 1/2″ wadding square. Add the log pieces, quilting through all three layers.
Sewing the blocks together is easy. Just sew right up to the wadding / block side, press open, double fold the seams at the top and top stitch it down.
Bayside Quilting sell this nifty template and have an on-line video on how to QAYG the easy way.
|It should turn out something like this.|
