    Sashing....I've looked at this three times and I'm just going to say black sashing. I love your blocks!

    yes, I like that super narrow sashing... it's just enough of a frame for each block. What a great top! I can't wait to see it all done!

    I vote for skninny sashing! just enough definition between blocks.
    If you don't work on it you'll never finish it.

    Dark narrow sashings definitely.
    Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift....that's why it's called the present.

    I like it without, the black binding will be enough to make the blocks pop. It is beautiful!

    Either way its stunning, but I prefer no sashing...much more artsy, I love the subtle blending & the directional prints.

    Hmmm, this is a tough call because your quilt is beautiful either way. I guess if it were my quilt I'd go with NO sashing.

    All I can say is ditto to the black sashing because it shows off your interesting work.

    I prefer the sashing as it makes the blocks look less ordinary. Nice colour choices.

    Love the blocks. I think the sashing really shows them off.

    Think I prefer it without the sashing. If you want to use sashing, try making it larger. I think the black is quite similar in size to the colors in the blocks. Maybe it would be more dramatic if the black were larger. I often struggle at this stage of a quilt...and end up auditioning colors and sizes until I find the perfect one. Good luck! Please post when you're finished!

    I vote for sashing, it seems to set the blocks off better.

    I'm leaning toward the one with no sashing - it's a very interesting pattern and love your color choices
