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.
