    I like the green sashing with cornerstones made from the tan starry fabric or from red, or red sashing with cornerstones made from the tan starry fabric or the green. I love that tan starry fabric; I think that makes your blocks just sparkle! Another choice would be sashing from the background fabric, as in Photo #4 with cornerstones of red or green or the tan starry fabric.

    I found it a little difficult to choose between 2 of them but whatever one you use, I just want to say that I think it's beaut. & not a bit dark & dull. You've probably just been looking at it too long.

    My vote is for narrow gold sashing and red cornerstones! Nice no matter what

    Since you haven't finished making all your blocks, what about ditching the sashing and set blocks together with blocks of an alternate design in lighter & brighter colors?

    My favorite ideas always require buying more fabric, and I'm nuts for brown. Maybe you just wanted votes on the fabric you already have? I like the red sashing!

    I'm considering everything. Your brown idea is really interesting.

    I like the first picture, it seems to make the blocks pop.
    Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, WINE IN THE OTHER, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO, what a ride!"

    Willing to 'think outside the box', good for you. The brown idea may have merit. Looked again at your fabrics. I felt my eyes had nowhere to 'rest'. They almost all have a snow in them of some sort. So a warm brown, maybe a moda marble if you don't like solids, with either the red/green plaid or a gold (change to brown and maybe the gold needs a bit of tone change) would be just the thing. It might work to bring the quilt back to your goal of dark (not dull) warm, and woodsy. You certainly have great blocks to work with. Hmm....
