Happy New Year Therm O Web fans. This is Jenifer here with you today to share a fun quilt I made using the wonderful Jen Jangles fabrics and an easy QAYG block. In December I started getting a little overwhelmed with all of my unfinished projects sitting in boxes. There were a few of these blocks in there because I was trying out a new technique then other assignments and projects got in the way and there it sat. I knew I wanted to start the year off with a clean slate. I finished 1 project a week and had 4 finished quilts to show for it and to give as gifts, Win Win. My Daughter has claimed this one as her Movie Quilt to snuggle in and watch movies.
I make a lot of projects through the year and I end up with a lot of scrap pieces of StitchNSew Sew in Fleece. I don't like to throw away the larger pieces but I didn't know what do do with them either. My solution was Quit as you Go (QAYG). Maureen Cracknell has an awesome tutorial on how to get started. My blocks finish at 9" and the sashing is 2". This quilt is not very big and it is a perfect lap quilt size and a completely manageable project for a new technique.
Tip: Taking a picture of your blocks can help you see the big picture to find out if any of the same colors are touching. Snapping a few pictures can help with placement and also if you need to clean up your area you can easily put everything back into place.
Quilting 9" blocks is a lot easier than quilting a whole quilt, when I was ready to layer I used my SprayNBond Basting spray to hold the back in place and quilted 1/4" on each side of my sashing and my quilt was done.
