I just completed the top for a wall quilt over our staircase, and am ready to quilt this stained glass quilt. Its completed length will be 90" and 25" wide. I don't have fancy stitches, so it will be just straight stitches. So...
1. Do I stitch in the ditch around the black sashing.
2. Do I stitch down the center of the sashing.
3. Do I use a double needle and catch both the colored strip and the sashing.
The colored strips are now 2-1/4"

I would appreciate to hear (read) your opinions.
After two takes of the video, I decided a written tutorial would be more easily understood. Now my goal is to try to figure out how and where I need to put it up so you can see it. Think I got it!
Yesterday I did a video about sashing and cornerstones and an easier way to make it happen. Today my goal is to get it up on youtube so I can post a link for all to see. Many of you probably already know the technique, but on Wednesday I got a quilt in to work on that needed this help, so I know there are people out there who can benefit from it. Happy Stitching
