I got this fabric out to audition a fabric for the sashing. While looking at it I thought how I could cut cost. You know a quilter has to figure every angle if working on a budget.
When making sashing for a quilt it is anywhere between 3-5 yards of fabric to make sashing and with the cost of most fabric by the yard unless you buy it at a fantastic price is sometimes overwhelming. Why not look at extra wide backing fabric. It is about 100-110 inches wide and you can get a lot out of that for a better price. Then if they are having a sale you are in luck.
I have had these made for quite a while. They need sashing and not sure if this is the look I want. I have used this fabric for sashing on another quilt and don't want to many to look all the same. Still not convinced this is right. I have it laying on my bed and I will revisit it to look at it later today and see if I want this or keep looking. Some of these prints are a little lighter in color and maybe something darker will work and maybe not. Not sure so I will just wait.
Weather is not nice to be outside. I still need to clean, but I guess we live in this house so it is my mess. I own it. Chris
