I am making a quilt for my bil's upcoming wedding. The squares are from a neighborhood block exchange. I only have 9 blocks that are 12 1/2" unfinished. The blocks are colors I am not hooked on, but colors that my bil and his fiance like. I thought of putting them in rows of 3 with 5" sashing in between the sqaures and 5" sashing in between the rows. Then I would do a border with the same sashing fabric of 5" all the way around. This leaves me with a 20" border on top and bottom and a 16" border on the sides.
I know that how we do these are based on what we like, but do you think it would look funny to have that much border?
Any help would be appreciated. THe quilt will be about 88X96.
