20.7 Journey Sashing Fantastic Fabric

November 11, 2011

My journey steps quilt now has fantastic sashing for the strips.

Here is the fantastic fabric I found last weekend shipped to me.  On top of the fabric are some parts of the sashing that has been serving as leaders & enders.

The fabric is dark, colorful and not anything exactly like what I already have.  This sashing has to go around the entire quilt, one inch wide at a time.

I wanted to see what it would look like and show you at the same time, so here is a section of my quilt and an example of how my sashing I want to look like in between the section.

Mostly so you can get an idea. There are three sections to this quilt and each will have this narrow sashing in between the sections.

And here’s the close-up of what that will look like.  I am really liking this dark & colorful sashing borders, I am glad I found it!

I also am finding myself away from the computer for the entirety of next week too, and things this week were even more busy than the previous week because of arrangements that have to be made.

So, even though I had planned to tough it out & get back to you (with another podcast) on the 19th & 20th, it may not be until afterwards.

I am hoping I can at least reply to you all some time on Sunday, but in case I don’t get to (which it looks like I may not be able to), have a good week next week too!

(I’ll be glad when things settle down, that’s for sure!)


  1. What an awesome funky print! It’s definitely a fabric that would dominate a quilt, but slicing it into 1 inch strips will take care of that. Can’t wait to see it finished!

  2. Great fabric Darla! Loved last weeks podcast. Hope uou have a great week.
