Get my QAYS Mini Quilt

Quilt As You Sew (QAYS) is one of my techniques for a fun, fast finish. This mini quilt pattern is yours for free to see if you like QAYS as much as I do! It’s the perfect size for a mug rug or mouse pad and a super fast gift idea. If you like the technique, you’ll love my table runner patterns, because they use the same QAYS process.
