    I am hoping to finish this top today but I can't decide which colors work best. I like them both but............... I will load 2 pictures of each so give me a couple of minutes.

    purple dots on purple for sashing. It is lighter then the picture.

    Put the purple next to the blocks, add a small border of pink and then a larger border of butterflies.

    Use all three.

    That is cute!! I like the pink sashing, makes my eye see the blocks not the sashing. Pretty back fabric.

    I agree with Sapphire, I like the pink. But I think the purple would be a pretty binding or outer border. Love your color choices!

    I love the pink too. The purple draws your eyes away from your lovely blocks! IMHO :thumbup:
