Floating Churn Dash

I have sewn together half of my blocks for the Floating Churn Dash quilt.
I'm going to hand quilt it with the QAYG technique.

It's too hot here to do the other blocks though....  :-(

QAYG Finished

What a joy to make a quilt with the QAYG method!
I can make a droomdekentje in a weekend :-) YAY!!!
This is the result of my first attempt on QAYG, it's a small quilt, only 60x80cm (25x35inch).

The front.

The back.

First attempt to QAYG

I wanted to try the Quilt As You Go method and I asked in my Double Dutch Group if anyone had tried the method by Maureen Cracknell.
Nicolette directed me to this tutorial.
I read it and I thougt it was a 'gedoe' (hassle) with the strips.
Lo and behold  this link popped up on my Facebook page!
I've watched it and it is the same method as Nicolette pointed out, but now with a moving images:-)
So I started yesterday evening with the Scrappy Log Cabin blocks I received from swaps on Swap-bot and this is the result so far.

As I have joint problems and I can't quilt very long/often, I think this is my new favorite method to make droomdekentjes.
I can still make quilts for sick children and limited the strain on my fingers and wrists. YAY!!!
With the QAYG method to alternate, I can hand quilt the quilts I make for family and friends.

Blocks for the Siblings Together Block Drive

I've made my 4 blocks for the Siblings Together Block Drive. Sarah set up the block drive for people who couldn't donate a whole quilt but wanted to contribute anyway.
She wants to make a quilt for an older boy and asked us to make a Churn Dash block in blue, grey, red, orange or green from our own stash.
I made these  blocks in the hope some boy will love the quilt Sarah will make from all the blocks she receives :-)
