Sashing is strips of fabric between blocks, generally in the rows and columns of a quilt. Sashing can visually tie all of the quilt blocks together and can be a strong element depending on the complexity of the blocks. Sashing will also make a small quilt larger, and by changing the color of the sashing throughout the quilt it can create a secondary pattern in the overall design of the quilt.
Benefits of Sashing
- The color of sashing can be the unifying element that visually ties the whole project together.
- Sashing can be adjusted to make the finished quilt larger or smaller.
- The intersections of the sashing can also incorporate a quilt block the same size as the sashing.
