QAYG - Quilt As You Go!

 On Sunday I did a little demonstration for my quilt guild (IMQG) on QAYG. I made up some samples to use to show three slightly different versions of the technique; narrow strips, wide sashing and adding borders. I didn't want to just throw the demo pieces in the scrap pile, so I'm making them into a new (and colorful) bed for my Humphrey (my corgi). Here's what the top of his bed looks like.
The orange strips are all joining strips, both the narrow and wide.

The back. The green strips are the joining strips.
I also created a PDF on each of the techniques. You can see and print a copy for yourself - click here.

I'm linking up with Stitch by Stitch for Anything Goes Monday (a day late),  and Free-Motion by the River for Linky Tuesday
