My women's group at church is making a quilt to silent auction for one of our missions. We met this morning to sew together some of the blocks. Let me just say that leading a women's group has greatly increased my patience levels, thank God!! A few of us were discussing where/how to label the quilt. Here is the conversation with a person that doesn't quilt:

Me: We could put the person's name in the sashing under their block.
Lady: In the what?
Me: In the sashing.
Lady: What is that?
Me: The material you use to frame the block.
Lady: That isn't what it is called.
Me: Yes, it is.
Lady: No it isn't. I have never heard it called that.
Me: Well, the frame you put around the block is called sashing.
Lady: No, it isn't. We just had a quilt made by an Amish woman and she didn't call it that.
Me: What did she call it?
Lady: I don't know, but it wasn't that.
Me: Well, lots of people call things by different names, rails or 'blocking the square', but it is also called sashing.
Lady: No, it really isn't. Maybe borders or something.
Me: Borders go around the outside of the quilt, not the individual squares.
Lady: I can't remember for sure, but sashing makes me think of satin or something like that.

I just had to change the conversation, because I was really getting aggravated. She just had the most matter-of-fact tone and aire. I am not an expert quilter, but have it called sashing, from other quilters, quilt patterns, and the quitingboard.com! Some people's children!!

Don't let it bother you. Some people are know it all's and you can never change their minds even if you have proof.

If she was thinking satin, she must have been thinking of a sash on a fancy dress or something. Totally different. lol

On another note, when I put in the word sashing, my spell check says it's not a word.
