What is Sashing?




What does the quilting term "sashing" mean?



ANSWER

Sashing strips, also known as lattice strips, are used to separate quilt blocks. Here's how it works. A quilter sews a strip of fabric to each side of a quilt block. This frames each block and helps it to stand on its own.

But, you can also choose to add only vertical or diagonal strips for a totally different effect. The sashing strips are highlighted in yellow below:
