Thank you SewBizGirl. Your tutorial makes this method so much more approachable. What a nice way to enjoy a wider sashing strip. Your method would work on something even wider if you wanted.

How nice of you to post pictures of the process. Thank you! I also like the leaf vine you quilted in the sash!

You can bind your quilt at this point if you want to, but I think it looks more balanced if you add the same width border all around. To add the border, I used Marti Michell's "encased seam" technique. It's basically the same as putting on sashings, only you need to sew the batting strip onto the backing piece first. Cut the battings 2.5" and sew them on the backing part of the border, but 1/2" away from the joining seam. Then pin the border front and back to the edge of the quilt and sew with a 1/4" seam. When you press it open, the seam will be smooth with no bump and no gap. I do this on two opposite sides, and then the second two opposite sides. Then you have this, all ready to bind:

And here is the back view:

Don't forget to sew on top of the sashings, to hold the batting in place during washings. I like to do curlique lines, but straight lines or any other design is fine too. It doesn't take much.

Here is my quilt after quilting the sashings and border with a simple leaf vine.
