I'm putting the top together for a Braided Sugar & Spice quilt. The braid is 95" long and so is the 4.5" sashing (cut length of grain so no piecing). As I am sewing the braid to the sashing I have lots to ease in on the braid. I can do it but the result is a bit wavy or fullness. Do I continue as I am doing? Will this be OK for a long arm quilter as they can stretch it tight and flat before quilting? Should I redo these and match the sashing and braid in the middle and sew out from there and even off the top and bottom after the quilt top is put together because the braid will be longer?
Thank you so much for your advice.
