    I like saching. I would put one of a couple of inches between the blocks.

    I think that a frame around each block would really be strikeing, but the colors are so pretty you can't go wrong with what you decide to do.

    I like the look of sashing around the block to make them stand out. Such beautiful colors! What a masterpiece you are going to have!

    I vote for sashing also, something narrow, and I would go with a solid color or tone-on-tone. I vote for a dark purple.

    Love the colours! I like sashing but that is really a personal choice.

    If my opinion counts, I am with my sisters - sashing. I personally like deep purple. Is this a surprise??

    Yes it is. I spoke to my sister-in-law and am going to get the rest of the family to pitch in with the cost so that I can have it professionally quilted and bound. They have done so much for us over the years that I wanted to do something extra special. I know my mil has been looking for a new bedspread for their bed.

    Isn't this just too coincidental? I have a burgundy and silver wedding quilt to make also, and I found some really pretty actually silver fabric at an Indian Store (that sells fabric for the sari or whatever it is called that covers them up completely). I've been trying to figure out how to make it work without looking garish. I think you just showed me how. Thanx for the great post. Oh -and I would leave the sashing off
