Are you ready to add Sashing and Borders with Cornerstones to your Mystery Blocks? Let’s finish off your quilt top!
For the sashing and borders, we will be doing cornerstones which are a new technique for us that we haven’t covered before. Cornerstones are the squares you can see below in between the blocks and sashing. Cornerstones add another level of interest to our quilt top and I can’t wait to show you how it’s done.
I think you are going to be pleasantly surprised at just how easy Cornerstones are.
The finished quilt will measure approximately 47″ x 60.5″
You may find the image of the quilt below helpful to see how we make sashing rows, block rows and then sew them together.
