You wouldn't think it would be TRICKY
to line blocks up when using sashing.
But I've found that they don't
AUTOMATICALLY line up!
I know I was as a beginning quilter.
I thought that if I just eyeballed it
and pinned these two together it would work.
It doesn't always.....
Thankfully..... I remembered this little trick today!!!
Using a ruler and pencil
Line up the ruler with the seam you are matching below
and draw some little tiny knotches on the top of that sashing piece.
when you lay the next row down to pin...
you can match the seams to those little pencil marks.
And..... when using WHITE fabric
pin it BACK away from the white
so it doesn't show through when you get this quilted!
You should also press it away from the white.
Oooh! I'm so GLAD I remembered that little trick today!
It slowed me down JUST a little bit....
but I'm really happy with the results!
