Home Sweet Home Sashing Tutorial – Tall True North Tree Sashing Tutorial (14)

Since I started these paper pieced tree sashing tutorials for the Home Sweet Home Quilt Along. we’ll be using the template in the lower right of the Compass Tree PDF Pattern for Paper Piecing pdf.

Home Sweet Home Quilt - Finished

Cutting Instructions:

True North Tree

For triangle (1):  Cut one ‘light’ 2” x 4”, cut one ‘dark’ 2” x 4”

For Triangle (2): Cut one ‘light’ 2” x 1.5”, cut one ‘dark’ 2” x 21.5”

For Triangle (3): Cut two blue fabrics – 3” x 2”

Two Blue Strips: 3.5” x 1”


1 – 9.5” x 1” in Brown

2 – 9.5” x 1.5” in Green


047 For the final ‘True North Tree’ you’ll be using the lower right template.


Follow the same theory making this ‘tree’ as you did in the True North Tree in a previous post.  Once you have your ‘tree’ you’ll have to add the two thin, 1” blue strips to each side of the block.

Now we have our main ‘True NorthTree’ Piece.  The rest of this sashing goes together easily.

Take your brown trunk fabric and sew one strip of green fabric to either side.  Press toward the green.  Sew this strip to the bottom of your true north tree.  Press towards the trunk strip.


Again – don’t hesitate to ask for clearer instructions!
