    I like it with the sashing but I think it needs to be a bit wider, just to give it a little more definition.

    I love the blocks! I would say this; if you have lots of time, use the sashing. If not, just leave it like it is. I like it as it is really well.
    Would you share with us/me how you cut the blocks in the shapes they are in?

    Both are gorgeous but I like the sashing best, I think.

    Both work but I like the way the blocks blend without the sashing - so without gets my vote

    I instantly felt I liked it with the sashing, but after looking at it for a few minutes, I like it better without the sashing. I think it will be a more interesting and unique quilt without the sashing.

    The sashing just gives it something more to the blocks.

    I usually like sashing best, but in this case quilt becomes more interesting without sashing. Flip a coin and then be satisfied with the result. froggyintexas

    If it was my quilt, I would use one of those scrappy colors as sashing and then a border of all black. This should pop your quilt which is going to be beautiful.

    Gorgeous - I think this is just a personal taste thing. What look are you going for? I think I like the sashing...but it would be just as interesting without it.

    I also like it with the sashing, but could get used to it without the sashing...either way it is pretty. The sashing kind of gives you breathing room as you look it, and without it, it is just kind of breathtaking...I hope you understand what I mean. The colors are gorgeous and either way would be really pretty!

    That must have been fun to paper piece! I like the sashing as it's more dramatic in bringing out the details.

    The shasing would be a must if it was one that I was working on. highlights the colors and pattern
    Freedom is costly and quilting keeps us busy...

    I like it with the sashing --defines the size of each block.

    Both are lovely but I think without sashing it could be a little busy. The black makes it pop

    I think either way it will look great. If it were mine though, I'd skip the sashing. I like the woven look when there is no sashing.

    I just can't decide either.
