As you know, we have been working on our Little Playmates Quilt. We showed you the individual blocks last time, and today we’re going to show you a fun little trick with the sashing. This quick little quilting tutorial adds a little eight-point star in the intersections between the blocks. For this sashing, you’ll need four 2″ sashing strips (these will be the length of your blocks), one 2″ square for the center of the star, and eight 1.5″ squares for the points of the star.
Gorgeous and easy! We love how this add a little extra something to the corners that would otherwise be so bare and empty. Wouldn’t this be a fun addition to your next quilt? Stay tuned to follow our progress on the Little Playmates Quilt, and see what else we’re up to!
