This is what I usually do when sewing sashings that need to look lined up. I peek before sewing to make sure it is all lined up and pin on each side! Such an easy fix.
Sashing is great for this technique. You don't need to worry about pressing the bulk of the piping against your block. It happily goes towards the sashing. It looks great and no bulges!
Finally the flowers are done. For now it is going to get added to my UFO pile until I get more piping and figure out that border. I know that can be a dangerous place to put an unfinished quilt. It may never get out of that UFO pile but I'll take a chance.
Will I do this technique again? I hope so! It was so much fun and it was easy. And it would be great on not only curves but straight lines. The thin piping really adds a little extra zing!
Up next I am skipping to The Quilt Show - Episode #111 and will do a 'greeting card' and then I'll be heading to #112 for Threadplay with Libby Lehman.
