First Quilt-As-You-Go

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.
