Marie. Putting in your 10 minutes I see. LOL.

The width of the sashing can depend on how wide you want your finished quilt to be. Right now, without sashing and borders, you quilt is 42.5 x 68.  Let's just deal with the width. If you add sashing you would have 6 strips (if you want sashing along the outside also). I normally cut my sashing strips 2-1/2" wide. So that would be finished 2" which would add an additional 12" to the width for a total of 54.5 without borders.

The length would use 9 sashing strips for a total of an additional 18". 

So now, without borders, your quilt measures 54.5 x 86.

Does this help? Can I ask what the quilt is meant to be used for? Is it a twin size quilt? The reason I ask is the length is quite a bit longer in relation to the width. You may not need that many rows unless that's the size you want.

Whoops, poor math. The finished size before borders would be 56.5 x 86.

Dang!! I was right the first time 54.5 x 86. If you add a 1" barrier strip and a4" border it will be 64.5 x 96

OK, one more Marie. This is the same layout only with sashing cut at 2" and finishes at 1-1/2" . 
Finished size is now 61.5 x 91.5"

Just MHO...this one looks best...if it were mine I'd use this measurement.

Does this help?

Thank you Judy, it sure does.  You're right, it would be way too long in any case.  Haven't thought of a use for it so don't know what it will be used for, probably a UFO like all my other tops!  :  )  I'll have to do a little more figuring before I go any further.  Thanks for the heads up on measurements.  Will let you know what I do when I get it right in my head.  Pictures to follow.

Should have read further, I think I should eliminate a row, it looks too long in the pics.  Going to lay it out with the fabric for the sashing behind the squares like Carol suggested.  Be right back!

It makes me so happy to see you all helping one another out with quilting-and picking each other up when life gets up down!

I have some very exciting news-I'm going to be an aunt!! My sister is having her first child, this is the first grandchild in the family. I couldn't be more excited and I already purchased a few baby outfits. We will be finding out the gender next month-and then I can really dive in to baby clothes shopping :) This also means I need to plan a baby shower...busy busy!

Here it is with one less row and 1.5" finished sashing.  What do you think?

Thanks Judy, I won fat quarters and this is sorta what I decided to do with it.  Not sure I like the 1.5", maybe 2" will look better to me and maybe some corner stones will jazz it up a bit.  I will also play around with the layout.  By the time I figure that out it'll be Christmas.  LOL

just ran errands.  I was so happy to hear a plumber came to my DD and helped her out with water damage today.
