I quilted the quilt by using the stitch-in-the-ditch method. I recently came to love this quilting, because it is fast and it generally gives a decent result.
The truth is that I really hate sashing my blocks. If I can avoid it, I will. And I am more drawn to designs that don’t have sashing. But this adorable star sashing baby quilt has been on my pinterest list for ages, and I just had to make it. What about you? Who else hates sashing?
Thank you for reading, have a nice weekend, and don’t forget to stop by my Instagram account @zarkadia to keep track on what I’m doing and maybe say hi once in a while!
