    I've got the flowers dealt with and decided on but now I'm stuck on the sashing. This is the color I had picked out from the start that I put in EQ. It looked good on the print out, but now that I have some of it sewn together I think it's way too loud. I feel like it overpowers the baskets and that maybe I should have gone with a pale yellow.

    Not all of this is sewn together, and what part of this is sewn is all that I have sewn so seam ripping wouldn't be too terrible. I'd be wasting a lot of fabric though because all my sashing is cut out.

    So what's everyone's opinion on this issue? DH, who is not really great with colors, thinks the orange is fine and it frames the blocks. He thinks yellow would blend too much but said maybe that's what I wanted. Bless his heart for trying to say the right thing. :)

    I think it is pretty and would be very springy. I think it will draw the baskets out even more.

    In my humble opinion, I think it nicely frames the blocks.

    Personally I like the orange & think with pale yellow it would look too washed out.

    I like the orange, especially with the wide border. I think it's perfect.

    I think you may be right - the baskets do disappear. Pale yellow may be too insipid. How about the green in the border? I guess you just have to try different variations until you are happy.

    I really think the orange makes the baskets "pop". I like it the way you have it...Especially with the floral fabric next to it!!!
