What are you most proud of? that i returned to my quilting "roots" - QAYG is the first thing i ever did and i love it - it is really "me" - so glad i got back into it - i love to use scraps to do things with ease and big bang for my investment of time and effort - and this is so "it" for me - love it! thx, tara!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? relax, have fun, be flexible, be spontaneous, use scraps, be wonky, and plans & perfection be damned! it's so much fun if you want to be loose and scrappy & get instant gratification from immediate quilted pieces!

sorry, this isn't a "finished" project, but Tara, wanted u to see i'm not slacking (; - i've been working on blocks vs making a hot pad, until i got my pattern printed - now i'm getting slowly started - just made the pile of scraps i'll use - some might look familiar! (:

You're not slacking? You don't know what that even means, speed demon! I'm the one that still owes you a quilt!!! Love these blocks!

This is so nice. It makes me want to try a quilt as you go quilt!

LOVE IT! How did you join the blocks together? How does the back look?

ugh, just wrote a long response but lost it when i went to look for the tutorial - so, there are many ways to join together, here is one: not the best part of this process, a little tedious and takes some practice to do it neatly (i guess), so kind of the stick in the spokes for QAYG blocks, in my opinion, but i can't help myself, i love to make them! wish i had already done it so i could share my experience, but i am obviously dragging my feet on tackling it!

Thank you...I would not have guessed that and sincerely appreciate the time you took to look up the info. I have really enjoyed making the potholders but have not moved onto my tinker tote yet. Your quilt is awesome! :)
