Here's a short tutorial on joining rows with sashing and no cornerstones, like the red rail fence.
First, sew a long sashing to a row of blocks.
Next, using a ruler and a pencil, make a mark on the sashing where the seams would line up. This is what I'm doing in the photo below.
Make small marks, that will be in the seam allowance when the next row is sewn on.
Now line up the sashing seams in the next row with these marks, and pin. Stitch.
I'm still finding time to sew, even with my busier schedule, although I may not get around to blogging every week. I really love reading all the blog posts and seeing what everybody is up to at Crazy Mom Quilts and Busy Hands Quilts.
I'm linking up there today.

Before I folded, and sorted, and hauled stuff to the basement. Before I dusted and rearranged items on my shelves. Before I vacuumed.
Warning--the next photo is dirty and disgusting.
I feel a little better now.
I'm still making progress on my vintage scrap bag quilts.
Now I have to decide. Do I really want to do this? And if I do, what color should I set the stars with? White? Light blue? Green? Orange? Just not pink, I'm not a big fan of pink.
Oh, boy, here I go again.
What are YOU working on? I hope it gives you joy.

It's nice to have it out of the closet, ready to go to a new home.
My other projects have been moving along slowly. But at least they're moving.
As I finish them, I'm pinning them together in sets of ten so I can keep track of how many I have.
I definitely cut too many pieces! What on earth am I going to do with all these vintage rectangles?
Hmm. I might have to start another quilt.
Wishing you more quilts this week, and always.
I'm linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts and Busy Hands Quilts this week. I can't wait to sit down with a glass of iced tea and read all the other posts.
