    I think the solid black would be very effective, but I, personally, would do better with cornerstones (especially on such a large quilt). Cornerstones could all be of the same fabric of choice (perhaps a solid white or off-white).
    One step at a time, always forward.

    I think you have a lot going on and the plain black strips would just set it off. But if you really want to do the cornerstone to help line it up, I would only use like 3 main colors. It's usually best for the eye to use an odd amount.
    Blessed are the quilters, for they are the piecemakers.

    Beautiful start! I personally would use cornerstones but would make them like the center of your squares and have black as the last edge so it would be like a mini one of your blocks. I'm sure you have some leftover bits. Use them UP!!!!

    Really neat quilt. Great use of striped fabrics. I'm thinking along the lines of the others who said cornerstones might be the better choice here. Either way - it's beautiful.

    It's going to be stunning.

    Sashing help please!
    Beautiful quilt. I have found that cornerstones (yes I have even done them in the same fabric as my sashing) makes it so much easier. I would totally do the cornerstones in the same black as your sashing .

    I love your quilt! I agree with all the ladies regarding keeping things aligned. Cornerstones will help but I wonder if it would distract from the geometric beauty of the top if it were in a different colour? Perhaps cornerstones in the same black fabric would suit better? I will be interested to see your finished quilt! It is going to look gorgeous regardless of how you finish it. You need to go with the look you want to achieve. Personally I think plain black, black corner stones or without, would look good. Thank you for sharing and allowing us the opportunity to offer you our thoughts and suggestions.

    I vote for cornerstones with some of your bright fabric!
