    Am trying to put this top together and wonder about putting sashing strips between the blocks or just a border on the outside. Would you put sashing and cornerstones or jjust the sashing.
    Any ideas, opinions, comments would be appreciated greatly.

    I think that white sashing with bright cornerstones would be wonderful -- would put more space between the blocks and give you a chance to highlight some of your great prints.

    Yes, I would also add sashing. Cornerstones make it so much easier (for me) to line everything up, so I would also use cornerstones! i like the color scheme suggested by LeslieFrost

    I think sashing between would show off each basket. Love your colors. Hope you will post a pic of the finished quilt. Nice work
