Happy Flower Garden Quilt Along – Week 9 – Add Sashing and Cornerstones

IMG_6211

Welcome to Week 9 of the Happy Flower Garden Quilt Along! This week we will be finishing our quilt tops! Yay!

If you are sticking to the pattern, we will be adding sashing and corner stones in between all of our blocks. You could go with sashing the same color as your background fabric, or something totally different!! It all depends on how you want your quilt to look.

I like using cornerstones, it helps you line up your blocks and gives your quilt another design element.

With my original Happy Flower Garden quilt I used the background fabric for my sashing.

The second Happy Flower Garden Quilt I made, I used a beautiful floral for my sashing!

You could leave out the cornerstones and make long sashing strips. I’m excited to see what you all chose to do!!

I will be filming a LIVE Video Today, Tuesday June 26th at 10:15 am PDT (West Coast USA) in the Facebook Group! I will be going over how to put you quilt top together and answering any questions you have. The video will be saved for later viewing.
