    Formula for figuring your front and back sashings. (This is only if you are using the folding method. )

    [ Final width of Sashing ] + [ 1/2"] = Width of top Sashing.

    [ Final width of Top Sashing * 2 ] + [ 3/4"] = Width to cut back Sashing.

    EXAMPLE using the formula.

    Front Sashing > [The Final Width of my Sashing will be 4 inches.] + [1/2"] = 4- 1/2" width

    Back Sashing > [ 4" x 2] + [ 3/4" ] = 8- 3/4" width


    Hope this helps clarify a bit more.
    Have an awesome day!

    Jenniky - Thinking about it, folding the back sashing in half would definitely make it more precise. And, yes, trying to fold over a small section of fabric would probably be a real "pain".... your suggested method just makes more sense. Thanks!

    Good Morning everyone. It looks like everyone has a great handle on the Block by Block QAYG method and variations using the sashing inserts. So the next QAYG method Im going to be learning and sharing is one which will not work with orphaned blocks. My thinking is the next couple of weeks I will be reviewing the method and will start working on the new QAYG project. I will share the stages and steps of what Im working on at the end of September beginning October time frame so if I run into trouble with this new method I resolve any mishaps before presenting it to the thread. Of all of the QAYG methods this particular one has been the most puzzling. So this will be a big challenge and achievement for me to be able to present this particular method. Im up for it and lookin forward to moving on to this new QAYG method.

    Im not quite sure what to name this particular method. So will not give it a name at the moment. It is necessary that the fabric squares are precut to a specific size. This is about as much as I can share about the process at the moment.

    I hope everyone is still enjoying following along. As I am enjoying all of us sharing and learning together.
    Personally I am having a little less time to quilt as autumn brings a whole list of events that I have to attend to and also I have started working with a new physician and a chiropractor for my back and hip problems. As I know everyone else has their own trillion projects ongoing and we all have life events to attend to I hope we can all continue to share our projects, comments and input on all our QAYG projects on this thread.
    Have an awesome day!

    Have fun at your Retreat. I was suppose to go to a retreat this weekend. But am not going to be able to attend until my back is in better condition to be traveling.
    Have an awesome day!

    JeanineG and Yayaquilts thank you so much for your kind words.

    How is everyone's projects going? Was a beautiful day here in Portage,Indiana. I spent the day outside micro managing (according to my youngest DD.) the yearly tree trimming and yard work. Tomorrow I'm looking forward to a full day of quilting.
    Have an awesome day!

    Hi Jenn, Charlotte here, I'm still hanging around. Toby got digitized by one of our own friends on the board. He is so cute embroidered, and he can have applique as well, that little sweetie! I worked on my customer quilts today and accomplished a lot so I am getting back to toby tonite. Also have some blocks to start on another little wallhanging using our QAYG method. I love it!
    Life is Good!
