    I am having a Homer Simpson moment. Duhhhh, why did I not thing of marking the sashing with a little pencil mark before. It would make it sooo much easier. Thank you for alerting me to the obvious.

    This is why I LOVE this board!! Great suggestions, and i will definitely use them when I start sewing the blocks on my design wall together. Soon as I work up the nerve to start!

    If it's true we learn from our mistakes, I'm going to be a genius!

    This is what I will do next time I want sashing and cornerstones for sure!

    Thanks for sharing. Method sounds easier than how I have been doing it.

    It's a S&W variation, I think, uses 4 pieces for the block instead of 6 or 8. It's called Florentine Fantasy, and is a free pattern available here: http://www.robertkaufman.com/quiltin...ntine_fantasy/

    The hardest part is choosing the perfect fabric. The second hardest part is lining up and cutting out. After that, everything is a snap!

    Peggy, this is gorgeous! Your color choices are just beautiful. I've already printed out that pattern. Can't wait to make one. What's the name of the fabric you used in this quilt? I have a hard time deciding which fabric will work in these. I'd like to see what your fabric looked like before you cut it, if you still have a piece.

    I don't know the name of the fabric, that quilt isn't mine, it was made by a friend. I was using it as an example because I don't have pics of mine yet. However, I do know that my friend used an Asian print. Here is a pic of a matching pillow she made with the same fabric, maybe it will help. I'll ask her if she remembers what fabric it was, also.

    She does call it sashing the easy way and it may be where you saw it.

    The hardest part is choosing the perfect fabric. The second hardest part is lining up and cutting out. After that, everything is a snap!

    And here on the Quilting Board there has been many posted with the pattern called 4PP or Four Patch Posey.

    Some join 4 squares together ... and others cut a square into 4 triangles to then join the stacked triangles of 4.

    ITA .... the hard parts are getting the right fabric, then layering before cutting.
    After that it's totally FUN, with a surprise as you sew each four-some together as to what the awaiting kaleido will be!!

    You explained it very well.
    That's also the way i do it.
    Before I speak,let me think first:
    Is it true, is it kind and is it necessary. If not, let it be left unsaid.

    Okay, I have answers regarding the fabrics used in this quilt. The dark burgandy border is Benartex 'Noble Family' by Mizuki. The center focus fabric is a Hoffman 2011 challenge fabric, "Hanami". I'm fairly certain both are out of print.
