    I think it looks really good. I would however, do as Alien mentions and rotate every other block. If the size is appropriate, I would just quilt and do the binding. If you need to increase the size, the add a border.

    I agree! I love squares framed with white - it makes them pop.. gorgeous fabrics :)

    The sashing will also give it a kind of modern looking twist to it instead of scrappy - not that scrappy is bad cause it isn't. I guess I like it better with the sashing between the squares for some reason. I'm in the minority lol.

    I think it looks fine as it is, but if you use sashing, use the same color as your binding.

    I was thinking a cream sashing, too, but if you're in a hurry, doing as is would work too! The binding will frame it nicely.

Oh course I don't like them after they got put together and don't know what to do with them..Was going to just sew them together and put a pink border but now I feel like the need something to divide them..But what color?? Help what would you do??
    I wouldn't add anything to it other than to finish it. I think it looks super cute the way you had it laid out, very modern looking.

    I really liked it in the second picture with the cream in between each block. I would sash them like that
