Question Sash or Just Sew Together plus extra blocks for border?

I hope I uploaded my photos correctly.

Need some opinions on whether to sew this 1930's print blocks (top photo- sorry it makes you dizzy since its upside down) together or to add a white sashing in between each block? I am leaning towards sashing.

I have extra leftover fabric (bottom photo) that I could incorporate into a border but not sure how do it? Any ideas are welcome.

Thank you,
Pat

I'd add black in between. That would be more dramatic and show off the colors!

Border--maybe a narrow black and then my binding would be the scraps of color that I had left over.

Seems to me that sashing would really set-off those pretty blocks. Sorry, no ideas for you about a border. Maybe wait to decide until you complete the center, then maybe it will speak to you I like the white sashing idea you mentioned.

Thank you Ginger. I already have a white Jelly Roll so that is why I was going with that.

Lay it out and see if you like the look of various widths of sashing.

Sashing would indeed bring out the beauty of the individual blocks. I the idea of a darker color for the sashing.

White or black sashing would be nice, fairly narrow sashing. I usually don't do borders, so if you need it larger, I would add more blocks. The blocks seem fairly light, so would lean toward white sashing over black on this one.

Hi pseudoquilter, previously a member posted about pictures being upside down and they suggested that if we just right click on it and then click on view image the pictures shows in the correct orientation..... and yes yours does! I really like the look of the blocks without sashings or a border.... as long as you don't need to make it larger for your purpose.

I think white sashing would look more compatible with the 30's prints. The blocks are beautiful. I'd do a narrow white border (same width as sashing) and then a scrappy outer border using the 30's prints. I think it will be gorgeous.
