Scraps of Fabric, Scraps of Time
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.
