I am about to try a "Quilt as you Go" king size quilt using the directions from quilterscache. The directions state that the sashing strips should be cut 1 3/4 inches and 1 1/8 inch. I tried it on a small sample block and it works wonderfully, but I wanted to have wider sashings. Can I increase the size of the sashing strips? Or if by doing that do I need to add more batting into those strip areas? Hope that makes sense to you. You will never know how much I appreciate and gleen from all of you. Your quilting wisdom is remarkable.
