Is the block 16" unfinished (before you sew on the sasing)?  If so, you will cut you sashing strips 16" (the same as the block) that will go between the blocks.  For the top and bottom, you can either cut strips that are the length of your entire row to sew between the rows or use sashing blocks to offset the sashing.
