Make Sashing Strips and Rectangles
1. Sew together six assorted turquoise, brown, and yellow print 1-1/2x6-1/2" rectangles along short edges to make a pieced strip (Diagram 6). Press seams in one direction. Repeat to make 10 pieced strips total.
2. Aligning long edges, lay out two pieced strips, offsetting them by about 3" (Diagram 7). Join pieced strips to make a pieced strip pair; press seam open. Repeat to make five pieced strip pairs total.
3. Trim a pieced strip pair to 2-1/2x30-1/2" to make a pieced sashing strip (Diagram 8). Repeat to make three pieced sashing strips total.
4. Cut each remaining pieced strip pair into six 2-1/2x12-1/2" segments (Diagram 9) to make six pieced sashing rectangles total.
