Does anyone know what I am talking about?

    I have to make some additions on this. It was brought to my attention that I was doing this on a log cabin block, which has straight edges. Not a problem with the sashings coming over the top. BIG PROBLEM WITH POINTS!!! So.....I will have to add some guidelines as not to lose the points.
    Say the top block is 12.5. Batting should not be cut to 12.5, but to 13.5 inches square, backing piece should be cut 15.5. AFTER QUILTING THE BLOCK, cut the batting to 13 inches square, there should be 3/4 of an inch away from the POINT. By cutting the backing 1 inch from the edge of the batting,this will give you some leeway in folding the 'sashing'.
    Thanks to Penny for 'pointing' this out to me.

    have any of you done a "flippy" quilt that is quilted as you sew the strips on a batting square. Our guild did it as a sewing day class I really liked it. Of course my project is maxed out at 4 WHOLE blocks, a life time achievement, let me tell you I was smoking the ol' machine that day!!! hahahaa But I really do like the pattern.

    Can't wait to try this...do you have a problem with not squaring up the blocks and the quilt being off square?

    Of course you can tell I am a little OCD...LOL!
