    Your stars are very pretty! I think I might go with a beige, or tan for the sashing. Just a thought T

    I agree with the previous posts. Your stars are lovely, but I think if you use a brighter sashing you will overwhelm the stars. I would try green since your backgrounds are that, leaving your stars to stand out.

    I thought a green also...in fact I think I have just what you need in my stash...so send me the blocks...and I can't promise WHEN you'll get them back - I'm loving them so maybe never!!!! JK

    I also could see a dusty rose color. Something without a pattern maybe a tone on tone. the sashing would definately set the stars. You've done a Marrrrrrvelous job on them!

    I would try a marble purple color for the sashing.

    Thanks everyone, I would have gotten on earlier but my cable, internet and telephone went out. Called the cable company and they came out today. Someone stole my cable. haha. So it's all fixed now. Here's a picture of all my blocks. I went to hobby lobby today and couldn't find what I wanted in the clearance section. But I did find some orange with pick and green in it and got a 1/2 yard cut. So pretty. (probably won't go in the quilt but I had to have it!) I also got 1/4 yrd of white on beige. It's funny my hubby said purple! But I'm going to opt for the green (when I find it) and maybe a darker green for cornerstone. Might also make the cornerstones into mini stars. First quilt for myself, might as well try and go all out!

    Can't go wrong with the green - either soft and sage-y or deeper for more intense contrast .
