Our friend, Kat, the fastest Nurture Group quilter there is has done it again with a great do Good Stitches quilt!
In January she requested the group to make 2 string blocks as quilt as you go blocks.
This year, we learned the group we donate to, My Very Own Blanket, doesn’t have as many boy quilts as those for girls. So this year we are trying to design our quilts with more boy fabrics. I decided on yellow and green.
For the blocks, we started in the middle with a strip sewn onto a piece of batting. Then we continued adding strips until the block was covered. You can find the whole tutorial on Kat’s blog, here. It’s really quite a quick and easy block!
One thing I’ve always wondered about QAYG is the bulk at the seams of the batting. Kat had a very cleaver idea of using a zig zag seam to help ease the bulk of those seams. Great idea! And I love the look of it.
And the back is a solid piece of diagonal striped fabric. Perfect match for the front!
I’m tempted to make my own version of this! What about you?
