I started playing with a heap of block designs, and added a couple of borders, intending to concentrate on the sashing. In quilt layouts I set the sashing to at least half the size of the block, then used block designs to fill the space. In this design I have used the same block throughout the main body of the design, so the block becomes elongated in the sashing, and smaller in the sashing squares.
Then I added a border design, liked it, and added it again! Rather dramatic! Then the whole focus of the designs became the borders, which have sort of overshadowed the sashing. I changed the name of the series from Sensational Sashing to Border Beauties, though I will let you know that the border features in the first design wil keep appearing over and over again!
