|Basket-weave sashing: 5:x1" and 10" x 1"|
I'm all done sashing my blocks but I wanted to post this info on how I prepare the blocks and sashing before I start stitching them together. While I used a woven pattern, the same prep would be done for regular sashing, too. Before adding the sashing to each row . . .
- The sashing pieces are cut, seamlines and corners (dots) are marked. The short strips have 4 dots; the long strips have 8 dots. Because I was doing woven sashing, I had short and long strips.
- The seamlines on every block are checked for accuracy. Some applique blocks start out with no seamlines marked at all!
|4.5" x 4.5" template is key to getting the job done.|
|Note the migrating seamlines (left and right) and a pink nail-biter (center)!|
