    I am making a quilt for my GD. I am using a Princess Panel in the center and I am going to put a border around this panel and then put blocks of D9P. This is the first time I have tried making these blocks. I really like making them. I don't have a picture yet.

    My question is do you put a sashing in between the blocks or are they suppose to be put together without a sashing. Or can I do it either way. I don't know how this quilt is going to turn out I hope it will be okay. I will be making it a full size as she is 3 years old and they just bought her a new full size mattress.

    I have already made her another Princess quilt with Machine Embroidery which is for a small bed (not a crib but bigger). I didn't want to make the same blocks for the full size quilt.

    Hope this question makes sense.

    Thanks for any help.

    Absolutely! Whichever way it looks best in your head! It's your creation!

    I'm working on a D9P now, not planning on using sashings, but, I could change my mind.
    Good luck with yours.

    I like the look without sashing but it's great either way. It's up to you.

    It just depends on the look you are wanting to create. If I have other blocks besides D9P in the quilt I will most likely add sashing. If only D9P, maybe so, maybe not...

    I like them both ways. I'm anxious to see your quilt, it sounds very interesting.

    Thanks everyone. I will try both ways and see what it looks like. It will be awhile before I finish the quilt as I just started on it. I will post a picture when I finish it.
