Sashing and Cornerstones

I worked on a couple quilts that were gifted last week so now I can share them. Today I thought I would show you how I put this simple quilt together. I hate sewing long rows of sashing, so I almost always add cornerstones. Then I make uneven four patches, like this.

Then I rearrange them until I’m happy with the layout.


Finally, I add the missing bits to the top and side blocks and then sew it all together as usual. 


Tomorrow I will share the finished quilts.

Have a great day!

    What a cute quick quilt. Did you use a layer cake?

    Looking great! Similar to what I’m currently piecing for a grandson’s Christmas quilt back, though his will also have a series of wide borders since time is running short now.

  3. That’s how I do it, too. Much easier and things line up correctly. =)
