I mentioned the other day that I didn’t have any measurements for this little vintage quilt, just a photo from the internet. I decided to make the small squares in the blocks to finish at one inch. I wanted to keep the sashing proportional. I thought you might be interested in how I figured out that measurement.
First I pulled up the photo of the original on my iPad. Then I zoomed in until the squares measured one inch on the screen. I used a tape measure to know how much to zoom in.
Then I used the tape measure to measure the width of the sashing. Easy!
I decided in the end to make my sashing to finish at 1 1/4 inch rather than an inch, but this was an easy way to figure it out without wasting fabric and ripping stitches.
Hope this helps someone. Have a great day!
