I am not sure weither to put sashing between blocks or not. I think that I like both the same and I know that it would be easier to not sash. What do you all think? I have not decided on the main border yet. I originaly thought the large floral on pink was going to be it but now I am not sure and will decide after completing center. Opions?????????

It's beautiful and looks great both ways. You might let the size make the determination. I think I would choose not to sash if I had to make a choice though.

What color sashing would you use? I think something dark would be pretty ... if you decide to sash it, that is. Either way will be pretty.

I like it without, but sashing does seem to allow each block to stand out more. Am looking forward to seeing the final product. Is going to be lovely either way.

I think I prefer it without sashing too. Just a warning - in each picture, a couple of blocks are turned in a different direction from the others. Not that it would make a difference...
