Tiny Tuesday - Straight Set #1

I'll be posting a series of instructions for square settings for Tiny Tuesday blocks.  Ignore them for now.  I just want to be able to link back to them when they are needed.  

Use these setting instructions for a sampler block in a straight setting that is either 5 inches unfinished or slightly larger.  If your block is slightly smaller, use setting instructions for straight set #2
Materials:
  • 1 block, 5 inches unfinished  
  • 2 sashing strips 1.75 inches by 5 inches
  • 2 sashing strips 1.75 inches by 7.5 inches


Sew one short sashing strip onto either side of the sampler block.  Press the seam out away from the sampler block
Sew the two long sashing strips onto the long sides your block.  

 Press the seams away from your sampler block again.  Check to make sure that your block is 7.5 inches unfinished.  If you started out with a block that was a bit large, you might need to trim it to size. 
Each block with its sashing will be 7.5 unfinished meaning it will be 7 inches in the finished quilt.
