Trying new things, officially but unofficially :D

Trying a few new things ........

Pinned - made several blocks using a new to me technique - QAYG  (quilt as you go) - really LOVE this technique!  I need to do this project on a different machine - the stitches on the Brother machine are crappy, but Bella (my Singer 201) does magnificent stitches.

A new project from a book - pp'd hat-wearing penguin block from Holiday Crafting (made into a tall pouch)

Here are a few measuring tape bags I finished earlier this month - I really like the boxed version! 


  1. I like to quilt sections of quilt then sew them together then put the backing on in one piece and sew in the ditch of the blocks to attach it before binding. I love the little tape measure bags.

  2. I've got a couple of qayg books and have always meant to try it, too. Let us know how he putting together goes!

  3. Oh they look great!!! How did you do the quilting? Did you use your sewing machine foot as a guide?

  4. Love the qayg blocks and really look forward to see what you make. I've been wanting to try this method for over a year now and still haven't got round to it. Keep us updated on your progress.

  5. your new things are much more fun than mine!!! haha.... love the quilt as you go blocks...
