Hello everyone,

 

I am need of some guidance. I have been asked to make a table runner, I am doing 5" charms on point. The patterns in the charms are a little busy so, I thought to put sashing between the rows.  

 

I have searched and found various instructions on sashing math but, I can't seem to locate something with detailed and easy instructions on how to apply the sashing.

 

Any and all help is much appreciated.

i think you would just make the sashings the same length as the sides of your blocks, sash them as you normally would on a block that wasn't set on point .   then figure out how big to make the setting triangles.   i have one at home, i'll look at when i'm there.  it doesn't seem to me it was very hard, you may be over-thinking it. i may have it in my gallery, i'll go look

you can see i added the sashing, with posts.  each sash is considered a row for sewing purposes.  you sew a row of baskets with the short sashing pieces in between, sew that to a row of sashing ( you don't need to have posts, in that case you would have one long strip cut to the right length), then attach another row of baskets.  in your case you would do squares instead of baskets. .  i hope this helps.

if you look at this close up, ignore the little squares going into the border.   usually these would be triangles,  but i left them square and hand appliqued the top part onto the border, probably not something i would bother with again.   but who knows?  i'm crazy enough to do it again.
