    Need opinions please...

    I am making a lap quilt for my grandma for Christmas. I just finished the 4 blocks and now I'm unsure what to do... I will be adding 2 borders, which will make it about 58" square. My question is, should I add sashing and cornerstones, or just leave it as it is? Thank you in advance everyone!

    I think sashing would really show off the blocks. I love the color combination.

    Hmmm - I love it the way it is. Great colors! But sashing would work nicely also. Not much help, am I?

    I think sashing a corner stones would really work with this. Why dont you just lay it out with, take a picture, without take a picture and look at them periodically.

    Agree with Marti ... lay it out over the fabric you plan on using for the sashing and see how you like it.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    I would sash it with a print fabric with both the yellow and blue in it. This is one of my favorite color combinations, and I love the simplicity of your star blocks.

    Either way would be pretty. I am sure your grandmother will love it!

    I vote with sashing too, I'd try a blue, yellow print as angiecub said or do a solid blue with yellow cornerstones.

    Vote for sashing and cornerstones for me. However you decide to do this I am sure that she will love it. You did a good job of the blocks. BrendaK
