I have just finished 12 blocks and i’m ready to put them together.
The question is ‘to sash or not to sash’. Is there a rule?
Definitely personal choice but you might also be governed by how big you want the quilt to be; and are you adding more borders? In which the 1st outside sashing could be considered to be a border – see The First Sampler Quilt series if you want to know what I mean.
Also it depends on the block: by putting them together do you get an interesting secondary pattern? or are there more seams that need matching that you don’t want?!?!?
