Actually, it is not the first QAYG that I have made, but it is the first of the weekend. These are all width-of-fabric strips that are between 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 inches wide that are from my kid fabric stash. I laid out the center strip and then added strips just like when I make Heart String blocks. As I went along, I learned to check for straightness of the strip. Just lined it up with a yardstick and then pinned it down and stitched using my walking foot. Then I trimmed and added the binding. Took longer to stitch down the binding than to make the quilt, but I love the look of double fold binding, so I do it every time. This is a donation quilt and measures 40x45.
After being away for 31 years, we are finally home again. We are South Dakotans through and through, so this is were we want to spend our "retirement" years. My husband and I are getting ready to open a custom woodworking business with me being the paper pusher and the woodworker's apprentice. Along with that I am going to continue quilting and also work as a substitute teacher. Life is good!
