alternating light and dark horizontal stripes of sashing. It wasn't a Tula Pink City Sampler, but it had that feel, so I pinned it until I was ready to set my own quilt. To do something similar, you will need two shades of setting fabric. I chose dark and light grey from Connecting Threads. The lighter shade is called parchment, and I think the darker one is silver.
The final borders were easier for the top and bottom than for the sides. These are slightly wider than the inner sashing, so cut your strips 4.5 inches. Sew two strips together and trim to 83 inches. Do this for the the top and the bottom of the quilt.
All that remains are the two side borders. The middle sashing strip is now 2.5 inches finished. Each block is 6 inches finished, and you are spanning half of two blocks. So, 6 inches plus 2.5 plus .5 for seam allowances should mean 9 inch strips. The top and bottom are just 7.25 inches because they only span half of one block plus the bottom border. Sew the strips together with alternating light and dark and lay them out to make sure everything lines up just right before you pin and sew.
