    That is a beautiful quilt, can't wait to see it finished. I think the dark color in the center would be good for the sashing, a 1st narrow border and the binding. Maybe a batik with all the colors for the border?

    PS: Or how about your background fabric with some of the PP elements incorporated (maybe 1/2 of the pattern?) Can you see what I am thinking?

    I would sash with the red, then a small border of the cream to frame it, then a wider border in the background color of gray/black.
    The one who dies with the most fabric wins.

    me i would skip sashing and go to the borders, do a yellow or red 1-3" then a wider 5" or so of the background fabric. then bind in red or yellow which ever you don't use in the border.
    when life gets you down go and talk with a little kid. They will help you work out even the worst problems with their simple logic.

    I would use your darkest color for sashing (black? navy blue?) and a narrow double border of red and the same dark color. It has enough yellow. Very attractive blocks.

    That's my suggestion, too. I think I'd go with the red. Then your background fabric. This is a real stunner!
