Home Sweet Home – Window Trees Sashing Tutorial

The next sashing I’m going to show you for your Home Sweet Home Quilt is very similar to the Window Panes Sashing with just a minor difference.


00 005 Cutting Instructions:

Fabric 1 (light): 2 – 1.5” squares, 2 – 1.5” x 3.5” rectangles

Fabric 2 (dark): 1 – 1.5” square

Fabric 3 (light): 2 – 1.5” squares, 2 – 1.5” x 3.5” rectangles

Fabric 4 (dark): 1 – 1.5” square

for the ‘trunk blocks’

Fabric 5 (trunk): 1 – 3.5” x 1.5” rectangle

Fabric 6 (grass): 2 – 3.5” x 1.5” rectangles

Fabric 7 (trunk): 1 – 3.5” x 1.5” rectangle

Fabric 8 (grass): 2 – 3.5” x 1.5” rectangles


Sewing Directions:

00 006Step 1:  For the Window Trees: Sew the two light 1.5” squares of Fabric 1 to either side of the darker 1.5” squares of Fabric 2.  Iron away from the center square.  Repeat with Fabrics 3 and 4. 

If you want more specific instructions check out the Window Panes Tutorial

Step 2:  For the Trunks, sew the 2 Fabric 6 rectangles to either side of the Fabric 5 rectangle.  Iron towards the lighter of the two fabrics.   Repeat with Fabrics 7 and 8.

Step 3.  Sew the Window Trees to the tops of the trunks and then sew the two sets together.  And Walla!

Here’s the Window Trees Sashing between
Block 10 – A Home for the Birds and Block 11 – Happy Tree 


If my count is right – this is the 18th sashing of the 49 sashings…I’m about 37% of the way there :)
