    I did my basting by machine. I used the longest stitch my machine would allow. Then after I quilted my blocks and cut off the excess batting and backing, the block was already stitched around. That was a surprise, but I did not have to do that step.

    [QUOTE=VickiM;5418218]Will you share some pictures with us of the quilts you have made using this technique???

    Has anyone else used this technique and if so would you share pictures of your quilt with us??

    Here's my grandson's graduation t-shirt quilt using the method we're currently going through. Once you get the hang of it, it's actually very easy.

    Vickig... very nice. I really like the backing of your quilt also.

    **TIP** On sewing down the back sashing.

    Since the front sashing becomes 1/2" wide, if you adjust your needle (if your machine can do that) to just inside that 1/2" mark, your stitching will be inside the sashing. I'm still perfecting this myself and still wander off some time but, hey, as my quilt instructor always taught me....."Can you live with it?" If not, redo.

    On a separate note, did I miss the post where you state what widths to cut the sashing strips? I cut mine 1" and 1-5/8".

    Thanks !! I figured when he gets bored with one side, he can flip it over. His mom helped me pick out the sashing and backing colors.

    Since 2 of the center blocks were 14", I didn't realize this until I had already started cutting the squares 12-1/2" (duh !!). So I had to figure out how to work around them. That's how the center came to be. Took 2 days to figure it out.

    Now, the 4 corners ended up as basic quilt blocks because she couldn't steal any more shirts from him and I needed it to be balanced (kinda anal that way).

    I was actually pleased with how it turned out, using all those colored shirts and getting them balanced was fun to figure out.

    I've been doing this method for 2-3 years now but have decided I want to learn more methods. I've already picked up a few tips so this is going to be so much fun !!!

    For the current method I am doing the strips are suppose to be 1" inch width by the length of your block and the Back side Sashine is 1-3/4" width by the length of your block. If you click on the blog link in my signature you can easily find the posts for each segment of the current tutorial.
