    Sashing

    I am making a tshirt quilt. The blocks are going to be 13" squares. What size sashing strips would you use?

    probably would depend on how large you want the quilt to be. 2 or 2 1/2 would be my initial guess.

    i have to make one for my dgd graduation in may. better get busy, i think.

    I made a T shirt quilt for my daughter. I used 2.5 inch strips and it turned out great.
