Hi..I'm still new to quilting and I'm in the process of making 9" square blocks for a quilt for our queen bed. They're kind of crazy quilted and all different, in various creams and beiges. I'm going to do enough blocks to not quite cover the top of the bed (to make them a feature - about 20 I think) and then I'll do something different on the side and ends of the quilt.
I want to separate each block with sashing (I think that's the word for it - where you have a strip of fabric separating each block). I am going to do the sashing in a plain cream/beige colour. I'm wondering what would be a suitable width of sashing for blocks of that size. I was thinking 1" but now I'm wondering if that might be a little narrow. I don't want it to look too narrow, but I don't want it looking over wide either. What do you think?
There's a pic of a couple of the blocks if that helps
