Home Sweet Home Quilt Along – HST Sashing Tutorials

Happy Monday everyone!  I hope you’re ready to make some HST’s (Half Square Triangles) because today I’m going to show you quite a few sashing options you have with your HSTs.


First we’ll look at sashing 13. Geese a Flying

Tutorials for the Home Sweet Home Quilt Along

00 037

Cutting Instructions:

Cut 4 squares 4"x 4” of different fabrics – (I did two ‘greens’ and two blues)

Construction Instructions:

Pair each of the blocks together in twos (in my case – one blue with one green, etc) and place them right sides together.  00 038Draw a line from one corner to the other.    00 039 Sew a 1/4” seam on either side of the line.

Once both of your seams are sewn, cut along the line you sewed.  Iron towards the darker fabric.  Square you block to 3.5” square.  00 040Arrange your four diagonal blocks as shown above and sew them together to create a 3.5” x 12.5” sahsing.

35. Chevron – Sahsing and Cornerstones

Cutting Instructions (for both sashing and cornerstones):

Three 4” x 4” squares of Fabric 1

Three 4” x 4” squares of Fabric 2

Construction Instructions

Follow the instructions shown above for ‘Geese a Flying’ to create the Chevron Sashing.  By using the same fabrics you create a really neat pattern.00 041

I created two  extra 3.5” squares to use as cornerstones.  I placed them purposely next to my ‘Chevron’ sashing to extend the effect.
