I enjoy quilting when I’m in the mood to quilt! A huge mood killer is the thought of quilting an entire quilt. That is a big bite! I like to have stopping or testing points where I can panic at the scale of my quilt, and rethink how big want it in mid project. Thankfully I found TeresaDownUnder, and her videos! I can make any size quilt one COMPLETED square at a time!!!! Yep, I’m gonna start a new quilt this weekend – a recliner cover quilt. I feel good about this!

How to Quilt-as-you-go (QAYG) – narrow sashing

The finished sashing width for this project is 1/2 inch but it can be adjusted to a wider or narrower sashing. Learn the  technique in under 3 minutes:


For the block sandwich

  • A piece of backing fabric the same size as the block
  • A piece of batting 1 inch larger than the block
  • One finished block

For the sashing

  • One strip of sashing fabric 1 1/8 inch x the length of the block side
  • 1 strip of sashing fabric 1 3/4 inch x the length of the block side
