    I would use the light blue. This way it doesn't divert one's eyes away from those beautiful butterflies.

    I'd go for the darker pink in the butterfly outline.

    Why do you have to use sashing?

    You'll have some nice graphic patterns across the whole quilt if you join those blocks directly to each other -

    I'd also vote for no sashing, or maybe a narrow white (cream?) with pastel cornerstones.

    White, green or pink as they appear in each block.

    I would use the pink polka-dot that is in the center square of each block. It is in each of the blocks, but not right next to the sashing.

    I think red would be striking since there is small amounts of red in the blocks

    I'd go for the darker pink as well. Make those beautiful butterflies just pop!

    I would see how they look without sashing first. You're like to get a really interesting secondary pattern. If I decided they needed sashing I'd go with either the fabric the butterflies are on or a white on white and use some of the block fabrics for cornerstones.

    Try setting them together without sashing you will get a whole new look. Might have to make additional blocks to achive the size you want, but I think your quilt will look much more interesting!

    I would use the gold color to match the gold in the fabric and make narrow sashing. How about thin strip of the gold between two light colored strips to make the sashing.

    What about a pretty pale yellow polkadot for the sashing and then a darker pink for an outer border???

    I like the value of the pink around the butterflies, not real dark.

    I agree with dark pink, or a soft white with maybe a hint of a pattern...I think if you did the blue or green it would take away from them on the actual blocks...which are really pretty by the way...please show us pics when you sash it, or not...lol..
