Blocks are separated by sashing in some quilts. The sashing is often cut from a solid color or tone-on-tone fabric so its pattern does not interfere with the design of the quilt blocks. There are no written rules concerning the width of sashing. The choice is up to the individual. Usually sashing is less than one fourth of the width of the block that it will be sewn to.

  1. Thank you sooooo much for this excellent tutorial! I m working on my d quilt (I m learning how to sew and piece quilts by watching YouTube videos). The quilt is for my r old son and it is an on point quilt from another pattern maker. The directions were very confusing and your tutorial REALLY clears up a lot of questions that I had. I would like to learn EVERYTHING- but I ll start with hexies! ?
