    I started a double bed sized quilt for my DGD with coordinating fabrics using the 10 minute blocks. I knew I was going to put sashing in between the blocks so I picked up some bright pink. Unfortunately, the rest of the neons were also calling to me. Anyway, the blocks look okay (not my favorite) and I really am not sure about the pink. So, I have pictures of blue, green, teal, and pink fabrics as possibilities. I could also cut the blocks to be a block in a block, and use the pieces as one of the border strips. Or I could just throw the blocks aside and start on a neon quilt :)

    (I just pinned the blocks together so I wouldn't get too mixed up.)

    Teal (does not show the true color)

    I love the blocks, like the teal, pink, etc. just not necesarily together. They sort of clash to me. Just my opinion.

    It's hard to tell true colors but from where I sit, the neon blue looks best. The pink looks too bright IMHO

    I would probably use the green, just because I think the others will take attention away from your blocks.
