Hi I'm Gailf and new to QCA (yesterday in fact)  I'm trying to put together a quilt I've started.   While we were busy renovating,  I think sweet hubby might have thrown the book out with newspapers.  I just need to see the picture of placing the sashing and lining up my Fairy Steps, 2 from 1 Jelly Roll quilt!  If anyone can help, I would be so grateful.  I think the book was from 2009-2010.

Welcome to the group Gailf.  

I have the book but it's in storage at the moment.  If you don't get the help from someone else, message me in a few weeks and we should be moved in and unpacked. I will be happy to send you a picture.

I have that book. Is this what you are looking for?

You need to measure the rows from the short side on the top left of the row to the short side on the bottom right of the row.

Trim 6 sashing strips to this length, It's important that the sashing strips all measure the same. It's better to allow an extra inch or so which can be trimmed later, than to cut these sashing strips too short.

Pin and sew a sashing strip to the side of the rows, easing if necessary. 

 

Hope that helps!

Jacy, looks like Seminole piecing.  Can be stretchy.  Think if I do this again, I would use lots of starch.

Gailf, welcome to QCA. You will find so much help here. There are retreats so you can meet other members, also.

We are always curoius aboit new members. What part of the Country do you live in?. If you are not comfortable give us a town, perhaps justt he region. We have quilters from all over the U.S. and many Countries abroad. I livein the Northeast Georgia Mountains.

If you follow the forums, you will become far-away friends iwith us. Be sure and check out our laughing, whining and crying at What Did You Do Today. It's the best. Like I said, we are a fun  bunch.

Hope you don't live in the stoms path, as some of our membership are. We are all praying for their safety.

Welcome again, and enjoy!

Sukochi
