A Herringbone QAYG in Winged : :

Winged Herringbone QAYG

This week my friend and I continued our Herringbone QAYG sew-together and the end result is a finished quilt even more beautiful than I imaged it would be! She chose this bundle of Winged from the Fat Quarter Shop, a collection by Bonnie Christine for Art Gallery Fabrics of sweet nature inspired prints!

For this quilt we used mostly the new Janome Skyline S5 sewing machine, a compact, mid-lined priced machine with lots of high end features. I've been using it for the past few weeks and plan to share my review early this next week. I can honestly tell you I love it, it's going to be so hard for me to send it back to Janome!

Janome + Herringbone QAYG

This Herringbone QAYG took us about two days of sewing time while our kids were at school. On the first day we cut the fabrics and batting panels to size, stacking the fabric strips in pattern order so we wouldn't have to do any rearranging as we sewed. We took turns using both the Skyline and my Janome Horizon MC15000 to make our QAYG panels. By the end of that first day we had just one panel left to do!

This week's sewing day started with pressing the quilt top & seams open and making the prettiest Peach Sherbet binding!

Next I shared a spray basting how-to, we added the last quilt stitches attaching the quilt top to a cozy flannel quilt back, and then taught my method for quick machine binding!

This is one gorgeous quilt, we both love it so much!! And now Cynthia's making a second one in her leftover Winged strips combined with Bari's Emmy Grace all on her own in time for holiday gift giving, yay!!

  2. What a fast beautiful quilt. That binding is to die for. I used your herringbone QAYG method on a smaller scale to make a pillow last week and it worked like a charm.
