    Red face Thanks!

    They are here! Thank you Robert. They are even more stunning in person. The turtles was such a nice surprise as I had not seen them yet. Very serene and they remind me of snorkeling with them. The owls are drawing comments from everyone who sees them. The vine is so playful and the colors perfect for a retro look.

    Pink Poodle Family

    Well the pink poodle family is almost done. These blocks were the second swap I did last year and everyone did an awsome job on the blocks. Crafty do you see your Eiffel tower blocks and the wonderful Center block of paris......
    I had an elf who put it all together for me......Jean in Oklahoma. She used the japanese sashing technique to put it together. Cathy and I are so thankful for her work. Here are a couple of pics, she just has to add the paris fabric border and Oh la la.......Thank you Jean

    Wow, look at all those poodles! It looks great. What is the Japanese sashing method? never heard of it.

    Jean explained it to me, but I will have her respond, all I can tell you is that you sew the right hand side border on the block and then sew the top sashing on top so when you sew the blocks together they all have border and sashing. Then you sew the out side sashing all the way around. I Think.
    Lets see from Jean how much I remember......LOL

    FoxFlower, it is so easy and a great time saver. You cut your strips however wide you want your sashing. I usually cut mine at 2". Let's say you are making a 12 1/2" block, you will cut your strips for the LEFT side at 12 1/2" - do this for however many blocks you have. THEN, you will cut another set of pcs at 14 1/2". Now for the sewing - you will sew the 12 1/2" pcs to your LEFT side of ea block, press. You are now ready to sew the BOTTOM (sorry R, it's the bottom) strip on. Press, and all your blocks are sashed. When you put the blocks together for your rows, the sashing is already done...To finish, all you have to do is add the top and right side of sashing. This makes sashing blocks soooo easy, and none of this trying to match the upper/lower seams.

    This can be done on any size block, and use any size strip for sashing. Hope this 'splains it for you..Try it, you'll like it..


    Hugs
    Jean

    oksewnsew, I have been doing my blocks that way for a couple of yrs. Dids not know it had a fancy name. It just made sense to me and was a whole lot easier. Also you are only handling the block once( or so).

    Great job putting Robert's I should say Cathy's quilt together

    Robert, Quilt is really cute and fun. It was fun being part of your project. I'm sure it warms Cathy from the inside out.

    Thanks Jean, the sashing makes sense. Really doesn't matter if you do top or bottom, right or left, as long as you're consistent and do a vertical and a horizontal both. Just changes which sides of the finished body that you have to add the long strips to. Or am I confused? It adds cutting but saves time trying to piece long sides strips together to get the right length, measuring that long length, etc. Thanks for the instructions. I"ll try it next time I need sashing!
