    Looking for tutorial on adding cornerstones to sashing.

    I am new to quilting and recently tried adding a cornerstone to sashing and had so much trouble lining up the seams.
    Is there an easy to use tutorial on adding cornerstones to sashing? I tried googling for one and came up with very little info that was difficult to understand.

    I know it is probably a formula and you must use exact 1/4" seams but just couldn't get this!

    Sande, I have found the easiest way is to add the sashing and cornerstones to 2 sides of each block. Here is a GREAT tutorial. Try it, you'll love it!

    I,too, use this one. It has been the most helpful one I've found.

    Pin well - when your seams cross, alternate them so they interlock. Pinning will help things stay in place!

    I have been quilting for 5 years and did sashing with cornerstones on my first quilt. I haven't done them since and a client wants them so I had to look it up to see how to do it again Thanks for the link!
