    I agree with Nanaquilts44. A much as I like the vivid colors. I need the separation so I can actually focus on the individual blocks and not get lost in the swirl of colors. Have you considered a yellow sashing?

    I would definitely sash. Only I would use narrow sashing like maybe a strip of either black or white and cut the strips one and one half inches wide so it would be only one inch or one and one fourth with it ending up at three fourths inch. It will separate the blocks so you can enjoy each block on it's own and yet not be so white or black to detract from the beauty of the block. If you lay it out and stand back I think you'll see how nice that it can be.

    Yes, I agree. There is nowhere for the eye to rest.

    I like them without the sashing, too. It's a wonderful swirl and movement of color without the sashing, but with it, it halts the movement and keeps the blocks from " playing together". LOVE your blocks!

    I agree!!!!!!!!

    I agree. I think the black sashing would really allow the colors to stand out. It would be striking!!

    Very pretty, white sashings will show the off better and a border would give it a more finished look. Just my opinion.

    I love, love brights but would enjoy this quilt more if it were sashed maybe in black to highlight the beauty of the fabric.

    I would sash but not in white. It is too stark. Try one of the greens, blues, or yellows. I am anxious to see this quilt when completed. Please share later.

    I love all these brite-n-cheery colors -if it was me I'd sash them make each block stand out on their own to show off their individuality.

    I'd use sashing, personally. Your blocks are beautiful, but there's a lot going on there and I think a dark sashing would make each individual block pop, all on it's own. This is going to be beautiful when done. Please share when it's finished.

    Personally, I would sash. Either way you'll have a vibrant and fun quilt. I really like the collection of fabrics and have several of those in my stash.

    Cheers, K

    I like the blocks! I would use a dark sashing, black or navy whichever looks best. I find that dark really makes the colors pop! I also like the previous suggestion of prairie points for a border. Good luck and do post the finished product. I can't wait to see what you decide to do!

    I'd either like it with skinny sashing (1" or maybe 1.5" finished) or none at all. And I'd love the sashing to be a tone-on-tone black and greay print....enough of a print to be interesting.
    Mistakes are just opportunities to invent a new quilting technique!
