    Need HELP--No sashing or sashing???

    I am finishing up the squares for an Anita's Arrowhead quilt. I used western bandanas and leopard print. Now the question is, do I use sashing or not.
    This first picture is 4 blocks using the pattern of the bandanas and no sashing.

    The next one is some gold sashing, trying to blend with the leopard print and I see that I didn't set the blocks right, but am concerned about the sashing.

    And next I tried a light red

    And then I tried a darker red

    So, thanks for looking and any advice you can give me. The blocks square up at 9 inches & I will have 6 across for 54 inches and 8 down for 72 inches.

    A home is built of peace and love,
    and not of wood and stone,
    a place where happiness lives
    and memories are sewn.

    I like the secondary pattern you get with NO sashing. You might want to play around a bit to see what you get with different arrangements.

    Interesting choices of fabrics - I like them together.

    For sashing, I liked the yellow/gold better than the orange and rust fabrics.

    I am in total agreement with bearisgray. I prefer the no sashing, but, the yellow/gold if you do sash it. Love the quilt.

    I noticed if you put them directly together that a few of the intersections will be off a bit. Would that bother you? If not the blocks do make an interesting secondary pattern. For sashing, I like the gold the best but would like it better a shade darker? I would also like to see the blocks with black sashing?

    I really like it with no sashing. The sashing seems to interfere with the design.

    If you do sashing, I like the second or I would do black.

    I generally like sashing, but in this case I'd vote for NO sashing. Looks great anyway you choose.
