Sashing in quilting is a great way to tie quilt blocks together, as it adds strips of fabric between them. It is often used in the rows and columns and can make a big impact on the overall look of the quilt. Depending on the design, it could be quite complex or really simple.
What is Sashing?
You can use saching to enlarge a small quilt and create an interesting pattern, not only for joining your quilt blocks. Varying the colors of the sashing can add unique dimensions to the quilt’s design and bring out a secondary pattern in its overall look.
The sashing serves as the connecting element that binds the entire quilt together. You can change the size of the sashing to have a larger or smaller finished product. In addition, incorporating a quilt block into the intersections of the sashing can further contribute to a unified and cohesive look.
