Start by cutting a piece of batting a little bit larger than the square that you want to quilt
Exciting days for me, this is the very first time using Aurifil! I must admit that it is pretty slick, I feel a new addiction growing
Here are some shots of the quilting that I did on the blocks. Basically you can do whatever you want. The sky is the limit, since you can move around the block with ease. I basically echoed the squares in the log cabins. A friend of mine told me she tried this method with free motion quilting but the batting stuck quite a bit so it was not great, but I think anything straight line is fine, I did not have any issues doing my squares with the walking foot on.

So, that is part one. Next will be to put them together. I have actually started this but am going to save for my next post because, well, I am tired. So I will leave you with the finished layout for this quilt.
See you soon

Your blocks are beautiful! I can't wait to see how it looks finished! Thank you for explaining the QAYG, I will definitely be trying this.ReplyDelete
I really like your blocks; the palette is calm and vintage and modern all at the same time. The QAYG method is starting to call to me. I look forward to seeing and hearing about how you finish the quilt.ReplyDelete
I am so fascinated with this process in full sized quilts. I'm excited to see how you put them all together. Thanks for sharing your process :)ReplyDelete
I am recently in love with Aurifil myself, and this is such a cool post!ReplyDelete
