    Just quilt as usual, but leave space to have your seam joined . I left 1/2 inch from the edge of the block unstitched and that gave me room to sew my seam and not be noticeable that the quilting had stopped.

    Barb, do a search here on the QB for either quilt as you go or QAYG. There are lots of threads here with info on it. Someone did a tutorial on it recently that is really good (with pictures).

    I used sashing strips between the blocks when I made one that way. I saw a lady on Simply Quilts do it that way. Only draw back was hand-sewing all the strips on the back side but it is definitely do-able.

    I'll upload the picture of the one I did. I was a newbie at the time and should have made the sashing wider. The sashing strips are double thickness, front & back to make up for the lack of batting between the blocks.

    Thanks for that info BK, I always wondered about that, it is so simple once you know how and I didn't even think of it! Thankyou so much! I am saying this as I have a project in mind but didn't want to cut it out and start as I couldn't work out how to make the sashing the same thickness without batting, how dumb am I?!* The fabric is furnishing offcuts, too thick to regular quilt.
