We're off and running with Step One-The Sashing Strips for our 2015 Block of the Month! You'll notice that I use what I call my "bag system" to keep all of our pieces sorted. I despise having to search for just the right piece. Keeping the parts for each step organized into zip top bags means I have all the pieces, and only the pieces that I need for each step. My patterns always include more than just "sew this to that". They are mini tutorials on the hows and whys of better piecing. For even more of my "Sneaky Piecing Tricks" check out my Craftsy class, Oh My Stars. Use this link for 50% off the class fee: Be sure to check back each month for the next step!
