After quilting, mark where your cutting edge will be. Find the smallest width of your sashing along the edge, and use that measurement all the way around your quilt, or at least on that side. Do not trim your batting and back fabric yet.
After the binding is all sewn on, trim off the excess backing and batting. Be careful to keep the seem allowance the exact same all the way around, using your sewn line as a guide.
This was my first attempt to free-motion quilt a name into the quilt. I'm the newest biggest fan of the idea.
This quilt is definitely going to be one of my favorites . . . it's a good thing that Tanner lives close by!
