|Some of the strips in progress|
When I do QAYG (quilt as you go) like this I press the seams open and top stitch them down so the batting doesn't get too bulky. I thought you might be interested in seeing what one of these looks like from the back before I basted the backing on.
Of course little miss had to get in on the action. But you can see how the seams are open so they lay flat.
For final quilting I ran six or seven straight lines of quilting across the whole thing to hold the backing in place. (With this type of QAYG each strip is already individually quilted to the batting, but not to the backing.)
