I agree with comments already - looks great the way it is!

I don't think it needs sashing although I would certainly put a border on it. I think it makes it look finished.

You quilt your way.

It is so very thoughtful of you to create this for a charity. Whatever you decide the person that gets it will be very lucky.

If it were my quilt, I would add a white or neutral sashing, although the black sashing also looks good.

Also agree with the majority that it doesn’t need sashing. It’s going to be a lovely cozy quilt for someone. We’re the butterflies paper pieced?

I don't think it needs sashing because you have alternating blocks. If you had nothing but butterfly blocks, I would say you need sashing. But I think it's perfect the way it is. Kinda like the butterflies are floating around in a meadow of flowers, and there's no sashing to stop them. 😁

Thank all of you for your thoughts on sashing. This was my first post and I appreciate all of the input! I still havenít decided. If I sash I think it would be white, and mostly because I would like it bigger. I also think I may add a light aqua border with a darker teal binding. Weíll see!

barb in Louisiana~thank you for taking the time to show me what it would look like with sashing. That is a helpful program!

jmoore~The butterflies are not paper pieced. They are from a Riley Blake Designs free quilt pattern called Hearts Aflutter, which I am changing up a bit. It is a fun pattern! And I like free!

heathermom2~Our church ladies make tops at home and then once every 3-4 weeks we get together and layer, tie, and bind them into comforters to be sent overseas to needy people through Christian Aid Ministries (CAM). They can use 100,000 comforters per year! Last sewing day we made 57 comforters, which was our record! Itís a really fun day to get together to work with fabric and yack with your sewing friends!
