    when doing quilt as you go i incorperate the sewing of the sashing from the back with the quilting on the front so i don't have to hand sew this. i don't have time for hand sewing and like i said i thy to do the quilts in 3rds or half if i can this leaves less sashing to worry about. patty

    patty - do the m. michell book tell you how to incorporate the sashing in the machine quilting? i've avoided this method because my least favorite thing to do is hand-stitch. the binding is enough.

    thanks!

    no they dont but if you cut your sashinging bigger you can sew them down when you put the sections together.say you have a quilt 5 blocksx6 blocks plus top and side boarders you can peice your first two rows plus the top and side boarder use this as a section now cut your batting and backing the same size quilt it as much as you want now do the next three rows with bottom and side boarders cut batting and backing and quilt as you did the top piece now put the two peices right sides together on the back off the quilt pin your sashing stipe at the same time your matching your seams were your sewing the quilt together. this way you only have one sashing i also do boarders seperate but then you have more sashing on the back.hope this helps patty
