    The picture only shows the blocks. The striped material goes on as a border and then a wider black border. I think I will do the sides and then the border. Thanks for the opinions.

    Generally, if a quilt is going to hang, I want the top & bottom to be 1 solid strip to support the quilt.

    With your quilt, I think a corner square would look great, especially if you use 1 of the prints. I would add the sides first, piece the top & bottom with a square, & add them to the quilt, matching the seam.

    It follows suit that you have squares in the sashing as well.

    Great job, the sashing really accents the quilt beautifully.

    Here is a picture of the pattern. I thought I was almost done but thanks to you I am wondering about countinuing the small red squares at the corners of all the squares. Thanks for the idea.

    For some reason, adding side borders first, then doing top and bottom
    gives a more "finished" look.

    I always do the sides first, then the top and bottom.

    if you're asking! I would continue to do top and bottom first to maintain the look of the block. i would also put corner stones in the small striped border.that way the stripes don't touch in different directions.......Hope this helps....Racheal
