Here you go... It's basically the same except the quilted blocks end up butted right up against each other, so there is no inserting batting in the joining strips as with the wide sashings.

Thanks for a very nice tutorial.

You lost me with the last border though. I guess I need pictures. I didn't understand the 1/2" away part, I guess.

Very pretty quilt, too!

DJ, you sew the batting edge 1/2" away from the edge that will be seamed to the quilt. You need that big a gap because you will lose 1/4" when you seam it on, and then when you turn it you need the other 1/4" of the gap for the block edge to lie in. Everything ends up lying flat, with no gaps and no bump. Trust me, it works!

I'm using this method currently on a baby quilt. My blocks are 12.5" unfinished, so I cut my batting and backing 12.5" . I guess I'm over quilting the blocks, because they are all about 1/4" smaller when done. Do you think that will cause a problem when I add my sashing?

Thanks for sharing your tutorial!

Hi NZ! That "shrinkage" always happens from the quilting. Once you have them all quilted, you need to settle on a size for all of the blocks and trim them the same. Once my 12.5" blocks are quilted I usually have to trim them all to 12.25". If I quilted them more heavily they may "shrink" even more. Just as long as you end up with all your blocks the same size, the sashings will work fine.

When using a sashing in between blocks I pretty much do the same as you do. The quilting is pretty easy to accomplish this way. Easy to do larger quilts with working as a QAYG on a DSM. Great tutorial.

NZ, thanks for doing this awesome tutorial. I think QAYG has many advantages- one being to practice FMQ on a smaller piece. I'm still struggling with larger quilts Thanks!

It's Sewbizgirl's tutorial, but I'm 100% with you. It's a great way to finish large quilts!
