  1. What stitch length does she recommended using when sewing the cornerstone fabric onto the sashing fabric? What do you think about cutting the 12 1/2 in sashing fabric so that the sashing stripes would be cut on the length of grain rather than crosswise grain

  2. The width of the smashing w cornerstones is 3″xwhat length? I will also go back and watch the video 3 again also, Tks.
