Default To Sash or Not to Sash?

Hello Quilty friends. After the last three butterflies are finished, I should be sewing these quilt blocks together. It is a charity quilt. I was not going to sash it because that is my least favorite part, but now I wonder if the quilt really needs the sashing. Opinions please?

Only if you need it to be bigger, looks good without.

Your quilt is pretty, very light and spring like. I took the picture into Paint and added black lines. Don't laugh! I need a real ruler in Paint. The black sashing effect will add drama to the quilt and bring out the butterfly bodies. But both are pretty, and it's just whatever you want to do.

As is no sashing, it has a very soft muted feel, very pretty!

I'm going to agree with everyone else, no sashing because there's such a light, airy, springtime feel to it. Very, very pretty, congratulations!

No sashing - especially if you hate doing it. If you need it to be larger add extra borders.
