My first tip for sewing a quilt with sashing is to firstly sew all the rows together with the sashing in-between. Then measure all your rows. If all things are equal they should measure what I state in the pattern, however if they aren't, take the average and this will be the length of your sashing.

Next up sew a sashing length to a row, by finding the centre of both pieces and pin together. Then pin at each end and evenly pin the rest.
Sew together.

So my simple trick to get the vertical sashings to line up, is to do a visual check. Lay the row of blocks on top of a row with sashing. Fold back the top row of blocks and check that the vertical sashing lines up.

Then fold the row back and pin in place.

To make sure you have nice flat borders repeat the same method for the sashing. Measure your quilt top and make your borders the correct size to match. Once again find the centres of both and pin, then pin ends. Sew together and voila, lovely flat borders!
