    Black sashing would be nice also.

    I am with Sharon. I would do a very narrow black sashing now more then 1 inch or no sashing.

    Well, I am anxious to see what you decide. There have been so many suggestions. I am in the minority though, as I like the white sashing. I like white in quilts though, and I know that many quilters don't.

    What a pretty quilt it will be, whatever you decide.

    I agree. Though I might try audition the yellow or green in the blocks, too.

    I decided to whip out the Strip Tube Ruler and start cutting and make the Daniela Block following directions in the ruler packaging. Now the question - to sash or not to sash? All opinions and suggestions welcome... I pulled out Marcus Bros. White Lites but I also have Kona white.

    The blocks are wild and bright! Let them be!...............

    If the blocks are set on point, the inner design is going to be square with the world. Since the inner is what makes the blocks pop, I'd say, leave them as presented.

    I like the sashing because my eyes then enjoy the colors of each block. Without sashing it seems to just get confused to me. But either way I am sure you will enjoy it.

    i agree that the white sashing doesn't enhance the design. might work if you used cornerstones though. Otherwise, i also like the idea of a narrow black sashing. The quilt is bright and the black would make it dramatic. nice fabrics. i probably would have bought them as well.

    Love it with the sashing. Allows my eyes to focus and really makes the colors pop.

    I would sash. The individual blocks show all the lovely colors. with out , it is (IMHO) just a mash of colors. But you do what ever you want. That's what it is all about...smile

    I would put sashes around the blocks. I like it better that way.

    I like it without the sashing, but if you really want sashing, I'd use dark color as opposed to the white.

    Very pretty, colorful blocks. I would sash with black or navy blue.

    I like it better without. But, it really depends on how your going to use the quilt. If your using it on the back of a couch or a picnic or car quilt....you don't want to use white. But, if your using it for something fancier....maybe a sashing is the right way to go. I love it without, because I love the bright and unstructered look of it. It speaks to the "rule breaker" in me. lol

    I'd use a blue sashing. In addition to giving the eye a place to rest, you won't go nuts trying to line up all those points. Why do I say that? I'm in the process of making a Square in a Square quilt, and I'm just about fed up with matching points!

    I would do it with a narrower sashing than in the picture. Don't think I'd want white in mine - possibly black or blue. It will be a great quilt. I love the bright colors and the blocks you are making.

    I would like to see your blocks sashed. But I hope you will audition some colors as I think that the white is too drastic.

    I don't care for the white sashing. I think lt.blue or the lite green would be nice. Whatever you decide, it is going to be a beautiful quilt when completed. Please post a pic when you finish it.

    I like it either way, but if you use sashing, use one of the colors and the bright ones would be in keeping with the festive nature of the quilt. I would love to own it. Good job.

    I like them with the sashing. It gives the eye a place to rest, since they are wonderfully active blocks.

    I think sashing would really set the blocks off and I like the idea of a dark color sashing with such vivid, pretty colors.

    I agree! Sashing is needed but not nessasarily white. I would choose one of the colors in your blocks and use that. It should be a solid, perhaps a blue or green. IMO
