    Re: Need some help with this sashing before I hurt myself!

    When I put on sashing, I don't measure it exactly, but have a long enough piece to sew it on, and then when I get done, just cut off the excess. Never have to worry about "working it in".

    Truly stunning! Congratulations. From what I read here, it was all hands on deck in the forum to encourage you through this! I was in your boots a year and a half ago, just starting out. MSQ did the quilting for me to finish it off and it was amazing! You're hooked now!

    That is stunning! I can't believe it's your second quilt ever. Your points look downright professional. Thanks for sharing the finished product with us. Someone is going to be very, very happy opening that up on Christmas Day!

    Just a quick update. I found a local shop with a beam quilting machine and took my lattice quilt top to them Tuesday. It will be done and in my hands on Dec 17th, in time for Christmas. Can't wait to see the finished product! We went with a washable wool batting with a medium loft so it will be nice and warm because she's always cold in the winter. They had a selection of 108" wide fabrics, so I selected one, with a medium blue thread and a fairly meandering stitch pattern. Thank you all again for all your help and support!

    Your quilt is beautiful! Once you get the both borders on and get the quilt quilted it should lie flat. To sew the one inch strip border onto the quilt I would place it on top when sewing.

    We have success! I used a combination of all the help offered previously. First, I obviously removed the tan lattice. I re-ironed with some spray starch and nipped the frayed strings that occured when removing them from the quilt. Then I lightly starched the edges of the quilt and hand basted them together. When I sewed them together, I put the quilt top on the bottom and with the tan lattice on the top. I removed the basting and pressed. SO happy to be moving forward again with this project! <3

    All your responses have been definitely provided many suggestions to solve my issue! Unfortunately I haven't had time this weekend to put them to work; too much outdoor lawn work taking priority. Will definitely be back at it on Tuesday, I really want to finish it off in time to give to my sister for Christmas! I will keep you posted as to how it comes out from here.

    Well, all that being said, I think the quilt is perfect and I think you should just plunge ahead and finish the quilt. You will be happy, people will oooh and ahhh and you will have all this room for improvement and in 30 years, you'll look back at that quilt and say...you know...my quilts are better now, but that was a really good second quilt. DOn't worry.
