“Never put off till tomorrow what may be done day after tomorrow just as well.”
~ Mark Twain
No more day after tomorrow…I finally cut and pieced the sashing for the Tribute quilt…82 strips!
It took an hour to cut the strips. I wanted to be precise in the cutting, and I find it more difficult to cut anything less than 2.5 inches.
It took an hour and a half to piece the strips.
I followed Jenny Doan’s suggestion of pressing the first seam before sewing the second seam.
It resulted in accurate seams.
Each sash width measures 3.5″ exactly.
It took about 20 minutes to cut the sashing into 12.5 ” sashes.
I was planning on cutting and piecing the corner 9-patches tomorrow, but I think I would rather assemble the vertical sashing instead. I need to plan more for the
9-patch since I have two different main colors.
I am also curious to see how the blocks look with the sashing.
Looking forward to tomorrow!
