QUILT JOURNAL - Floral Applique - Part IX-B
SASHING REDO - PART B
Now the trick is to figure out how to keep the blocks as big as possible –
And to figure out how big those skinny gray strips should be –
There’s that four-letter word again –
M - A - T - H !!
THE HORROR!! ;))
But never fear –
I am the QUEEN of FUDGING!
I’ll think of something!!
Ok – so first I have to make sure the side HST sections are the correct size –
Measure them against the ones I have made already –
And sew them to the side blocks –
Then do some MATH –
Quick calculation gets the skinny strip size in the range of 1-3/8” -
I don't know about you - but 1/8" measurements make me nervous -
Like it is cutting it SO close - I just KNOW I'm going to come up short -
So - I’ll just sew a 2” skinny strip to the other side of the side blocks -
2” is for insurance – I’ll trim what I don’t need –
So – after a little fiddling and fudging -
I got it together -
TA - DAH!!
I LIKE IT!!
Next up -
Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -
