Queen Sized Quilt Made With QAYG Method

I named this quilt ‘the beast’ because it seems like such a huge quilt compared to the mostly throw sized quilts and baby quilts I’ve made before.

In order to be able to quilt it on my domestic sewing machine, I knew I had to do this one quilt-as-you-go style.

Instead of sewing the rows together I sewed the columns down and joined them into four sections of 2 by 10 blocks.

Piecing my blocks

I usually use cotton batting or 80/20 batting. I basted the backing, batting and column of blocks the same way as you would a whole quilt.

Batting Choices

I quilted straight lines on either side of the ditch at regular intervals in the quilt blocks.

Quilting Choices

I just sewed the two quilt top layers together right sides to right sides with a 1/4 inch seam allowance.

Joining the Sections

Once the top sections were joined I placed the two sections on the floor and ironed open the seam down the middle.
