Very pretty either way, but I'd consider a third option...frame the blocks with the lace but use a darker pink sashing that matches that dark pink embroidery thread in the blocks.

Macy Baby sorry I did not see your dark pink sashing till I posted the above. Looks great but try the cornerstones in the light marbled pink, not with the lace designs. I find the lace in the cornerstones is fighting with the lace in the blocks.

I'm another no-sash voter. To me, the lace provides the look of sashing.

I adore your blocks they are beautiful. Sashing would be how to finish it in my opinion.

I would make the sashing much more narrow. Maybe as narrow as 1/2 inch wide (finished). Or even kind of as narrow as piping.

Dark sashing brightens it up. Don't like the lace on cornerstones.

I like the white sashing the best. It's very elegant with the lacy blocks.

Another factor to consider: Who is receiving this quilt? What kind of person are they? Perhaps base your decision on that.

Sashing is my choice.
