I can’t believe that the end is in sight for the 49 different Home Sweet Home QuiltSashings!  I knew it was going to be an undertaking just making 49 different sashings but I have to say – posting the tutorials has been way more work than I thought it would be.  I apologize that it’s taken me so long to finish the job.   Alright – here goes the next one:

Sashing 32.  Nine Patch Centered in Red


We’re going to make 2 sets 2 of nine patches for this sashing.  It’s important that your Fabric 1 and Fabric 2’s are opposite of each other in value for each set of nine patches.  A red fabric should be used for the centers.

First Set of 2 Nine Patch Fabric Requirements

Second Set of 2 Nine Patch Fabric Requirements

Instructions


Follow these instructions when you make all four of your nine patches. 201Sew the two  3.5” strips of Fabric 1 to both sides of the Red Fabric. Iron towards Fabric 1. Sew the two 6.5” strips of Fabric 2 to both sides of the 6.5” strip of Fabric 1.  Iron towards Fabric 2. 202Now – cut two 1.5” x 3.5" strips from the first triple strip you made. Next – cut four 1.5” x 3.5” strips from the second triple strip you made.   Next – with the red in the center sew the second two strips together to make a nine patch as shown in the picture above.  Make 2 in this color way.203 Repeat the steps above so you have 2 nine patches in each set of fabric. Layout out your four nine patches so they alternate with lights and dark fabrics in the corners.  Now sew them all together to make a strip! 205And there you have it – Sashing 32 – Nine Patch Centered in Red Sashing!
