    So I seem to be putting a lot of block together with no apparent reason... Other than maybe trying a new bllock or method. The other day a used these fabrics I have had for years. Now I am wondering what color border would look good. I seem to lean towards black all the time and maybe I need to branch out??? Should they have a fabric in between, is that called sashing? Thank you.

    I don't think I would add sashing- it seems like the design already includes it with the gold and red. I might add another strip of gold/red on the sides that end up without them.

    I'd border with a narrow strip of black (like 1 inch) and then a wider strip of the red. About the same width as the red square. I think that would make it pop.

    Very cute quilt!

    I would go with the gold. It is nice and bright. Since there is black on the inner section, you do not want to have too much of it.

    Those are cute blocks. I would leave them as is.

    I started to say you already have sashing until I realized it was your floor. :). Thank goodness cause I wasn't liking your choice of sashing with those colors. I can be a little slow. I don't think it needs any sashing the colors seem to work well together as for a border I'm not sure.

    This gets my vote, too. Great job on the blocks. I love the crow fabric! Please post a picture when it's all done.
