Puss in the Corner Quilt Top

What are you most proud of? I'm proud of taking time to pin correctly and match corners as well as I was able to. I'm proud to give a carefully crafted thing of beauty to some needy baby or child leaving long-term care at Mount Washington Pediatric Hospital, near my home in Baltimore. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Use a flannel design wall as Pepper recommends. Press seam allowances carefully so they go in opposite directions as you piece blocks and borders together and the seams will more easily stay in place. Square up and measure your quilt top carefully before adding the final two borders.

Q&A with Mary Beth Loup

Susan57 asked:
Hello Mary Beth ... That's awesome that you do this for the babies! Here's my question: I put in the search area "Quilt as you go" and your quilt came up, with others. Did you use the QAYG method to make this? Also, where can I find the directions for your quilt? Thank you.
Mary Beth Loup answered:
Hi Susan, thanks for your question. Actually I didn't use QAYG on this quilt. It was small enough to quilt after pinning all the layers together, and I opted to use a metal hoop with magnets to embroider quilt designs with my Pfaff Creative Sensation. The project for the quilt top is included in Craftsy's class Scrap Quilting with Pepper Cory., along with at least two other scrap quilt patterns. She has good ideas for using up fabric scraps.
