How wide should my Sashing be?
Quilt sashings can be narrow or wide, ranging in any width desired from 1” finished (or even smaller for mini quilts) to several inches in width. Sashings should generally be proportional to the size of the blocks — you can effectively use a wider sashing with bigger blocks.
How wide should I make my quilt border?
Borders should be in proportion to the size of the finished quilt. As a general rule of thumb, a small wall hanging should have a border of less than 6″ while a king-size quilt can handle a 12″ to 14″ border. Borders that are too wide diminish the quilt center design.
What is the average width of Sashing on a quilt?
Sashing Width and Length
Work with sashing that finishes at one-fourth of the block’s width, or less. That means you would use sashing up to 3 inches wide (finished) for a 12-inch (finished) quilt block.
