    Hi sweetie!!!!!!!! I like the idea of sashing. I would choose one of her favorite colors and go with that one. You could also leave them w/o sashing but I think the sashing would make the posies pop Just my thoughts.......HUGS, Sue

    Can't wait to see it when you decide. I like the squares and think sashing would look good around each block. I don't do so well choosing colors. Sorry.

    I think black would set them off so nice. Make those beautiful colors pop.

    I would definitely put a sashing between them, otherwise they will become a bit "lost". Audition a few darks or even brights and see how it will change the look, you will know when you've hit the right combination. I'm like geckogirl, I am a big fan of black.

    I am huge on black, but I wonder if this is the right place for it. You may find the green gives you a more delicate look. Spread out your sashing fabrics and lay the blocks on top, that way you can audition the sashing without cutting first.

    I saw one of these quilts all done up where the bouquets were all pointing in towards each other, the flower part kind of make a big circle around the points, very pretty and an unusual setting, (at least to me).
