Hi! I'm fairly new to quilting and have found some very conflicting information on how to do sashing and borders.
I would rather not piece them if I don't have to do so but it seems to be very difficult to cut the the length of the fabric. I see that cutting them the length of the fabric seems to make them much less stretchy and I do like that plus the look of their not being pieced.
But I do wonder if this isn't a major waste of fabric and what is the correct way to do it. I have a quilting book that shows borders being cut out this way but I want to do the "All Around the Neighborhood" quilt that I found at the fabshophop for January and they just say to cut the borders the width of the fabric and give required amounts of fabric based on that.
Please help if you can.
