    Sashing and quilting

    When you have sashing in a quilt top do you actually quilt on the sashing or leave it plain. I know if I don't quilt inside the sashing I would need to quilt right up to the sashing. Thanks for your help.

    I think it's a matter of choice. I've seen it done both ways. Course an edge-to-edge design would go right over the sashing.

    I have done it both ways. It is a matter of choice as quiltsRfun said. I've done cross-hatching on one of my sashings for extra interest in a baby quilt and to strengthen it because baby quilts get washed so often. Have fun with it! It's your quilt...do what you desire to with it! :-)

    Unless I do cross-hatching I don't quilt on sashing.

    You will find that your responses to this question will be widely varied. You can do it either way. I always do some sort of quilting on the sashing especially if the quilt will be washed a lot. The only exception for me is when I do a wall hanging.

    Depends on how wide the sashing is. If it's wide, I like to quilt it.

    I stitch in the ditch on either side of the sashing and then usually do a simple design in the sashing.

    Add to this: it depends also on the pattern of the blocks being sashed and the effect you want.

    Personally, I like the sashing quilted by itself but have also quilted over it when doing an all over quilting. SID isn't enough for me.

    Have fun quilting! If it isn't fun, you will miss a lot.

    I always quilt the sashing, but I find most designs take it out of square. So I try to do straightlines on my sashing if square is very important.

    That's what I think too.
