Default Quilt over the sashing?

I have decided to straight-line quilt this sampler. I think it will work out really well with 5 lines going in 2 directions, diagonally through every block. What I am wondering, will it look better to quilt each block individually and not cross over the sashing or do I just run the lines all the way across the quilt? I have not done a quilt like this with such a variety of blocks which is why I am set on straight-line, but the sashing has me baffled. Thanks for your opinions.

That's a hard decision! I think I might stitch in the ditch on either side of the sashing and then quilt the blocks the way you planned.

Quilt each block as you wish. Use the sashing as a "transition" between each block. Can you do a swirl or loop in the sashings area?

With the variety of block shapes what about a straight echo in the blocks? Then something else in the sashings.
Is that an Accuquilt design?
Good Luck!

I am a newer quilter, just since May 2017 so I do not know what Accuquilt is. The blocks are from the New Quilting Bee here on the board. I joined along in July and played catchup for the other months. @Oksewnsew gave us wonderful blocks to do, along with a couple of bonus ones. It was a great learning experience for me and this is the quilt that I decided to make from the blocks on the Bee. I would like to have it finished before I start my first Bonnie Hunter mystery.

Congrats on your quilt. It is lovely with the pretty fabrics. You certainly can't tell you are a new quilter. The BH Mystery looks like a fun project. Enjoy!

Accuquilt is a fabric cutting system with dies to cut the various shapes. Here is a link for you.

I would quilt over the sashing. Cross hatching the quilt as a whole will unify the design without taking away from the blocks.

It will be very pretty however you quilt it. Great choice of colors.

Beautiful job. You have learned fast! Have you thought about putting a serpentine stitch in the sashing? Your machine might have that stitch built in . You can play around with stitch length on scrap that's the width of your sashing, to get a feel for what it would look like. I like to put some curves somewhere in a very linear quilt. Sashings offer that.
