    I am almost ready to put the sashing on my quilt squares and I would like to put a QTS in the corner between them. Any hints for me? I haven't done this before and understand that they can stretch if used with the bias on the outside . These will be about 3" squares when finished. They will be cotton but the sashing is a satin type. Am new to the board and am sure enjoying it.

    Welcome.

    Here are 2 different methods of making QST's:

    I prefer the 2nd method as you never have to deal with exposed bias edges.

    I also always like to make these bigger and then trim them down to the exact size. I would start with 4.75" or larger squares.

    (The actual calculation is finished size plus 1.25" - so anything over 4.25" would have some fudge factor in it. I personally like a lot of fudge factor. ;-) )

    This way you're guaranteed of being able to cut them down to 3.5" unfinished after you make the QST.

    Don't forget to post pictures when you're done.
