1st Quilt progress: Redid the sashing size – I redid what I did because my Sashing was too wide I think. I had it, 3-inch strips so I would make it 2 1/2 sashing. #Quilting #Sashing
1st Quilt progress: Redid the sashing size
So I decided to cut that in half making one and a half strips that would end up making 1 inch sashing for my horizontal sashing. I should’ve done it 2 inches wide so to be one and a half wide for the vertical.
However, the vertical sashing I cut it in 2 inch strips making it one and a half wide with seam allowance.
And I decided to go with nine Blocks on height.
Again I just winging it on making it. Just going with how my idea of a quit making is and so far, so good. Yes! A guy can sew and can quilt too!
I plan to keep updating my progress on this quilt. Make sure you follow SteveZ MaskZ!

I’ve been quilting for many years and love the piecing part, but not the layering – therefore I have many quilt squares waiting for that last stage.
Yours looks good, an excellent blend of colours, Looking forward to seeing the end result.
The part I did was not bad, but adding the matting, and the backing, I am not sure about. Thank you on the compliments. Yes, I just picked two random colors and sewed it and was like oh wow they go great together. I am looking forward to it. I redid the sashing, the girl at one of the local quilt shops, when I showed her the first one said, your quit is going to be very big. LOL So I went back and redid it all with smaller sashing. I think it looks much better with the smaller sashing. I plan to work on it, between my main job, doing mask orders, and then this. (Once this is done, I plan to do another quilt too.) It will have some t-shirts in it, as well as, quilting fabric. I got to learn how to stabilize a t-shirt not that long ago. Thanks for the comment, William. Have a great day.
