    Not sure how well I can explain this but here's what I have seen at my LQS; after finishing the quilt squares the sash as you normally would using 1/2 inch seams. Due to the bulk hey press open rather than to one side. Then the interesting part, they quilt the batting and backing material rather than the usual quilt sandwich. To attach the backing/batting to the quilt top they stitch in the ditch but only about 3-4 stitches going forward, then reverse 3-4 stitches using the smallest size stitch possible. When finished, you honestly cannot see the tacking stitches and everyone wonders how the quilting was done.
