Home Sweet Home – Shoo Fly Sashing

Thankfully Diane has been working diligently to put together some sashing tutorials for the Home Sweet Home Quilt Along.  I drew out my quilt layout with 20 main blocks (16 scheduled and 4 bonus) and I need to come up with 29 different sashing designs!  Ahhh!  I came up with about 6 more yesterday afternoon but I still have to write them all up.  This is going to be an interesting challenge!

Shoo Fly Sashing by Diane Lapacek


WARNING: These are those teeny tiny pieces that drive Kim crazy.

I had some unused half square triangles stuffed in a drawer, so I just squared them up to size. This is a great place to use them.

Cutting instructions:

Dark fabrics:

· Cut 8 2” squares

· Cut 4 1½“ squares

Light Fabrics:

· Cut 8 2” squares

· Cut 16 1½” squares

First, we’ll use the 2” squares to make half square triangles.


Draw a diagonal line on the back side of each light square.


Place two squares right sides together and stitch ¼” on each side of the drawn line.


Cut on the drawn line.


Press seams toward the darker fabric.


Square up to 1½” square.


Sew a 1½” light square to each end of a 1½” dark square. Make 4 units.


Sew a 1 ½” light square between 2 half square triangle. Make 8 units.


Sew rows together to make 4 shoo fly blocks.


Sew the blocks together in a row to complete your sashing.
