    Should I sash these blocks

    I enjoy making these blocks. Just wondering if I should use a sashing?

    I wouldn't. I like the way it looks and think you'd lose the uniqueness of the pattern.

    The Disappearing 9 Patch kind of makes its own sashing and I like how it looks. You can add sashing if you need it bigger or a nice wide red border to finish it off.

    Usually I would say sash it, but this pattern would be less connected with sashing. If it needs to be bigger, use multiple borders, IMHO.

    I agree with all the others - like it very much as it is.

    No sashing needed. You would have a completely different "look" if you sashed the blocks-not the DP9 look. The fabrics you chose look great together in this pattern.

    No, I would just put the binding on and it will be just fine. That is a really cool quilt. Some vetern of the military will love it.
    That is if you were to give it away. Otherwise, it would be great for 4th of July.

    What a great quilt! I think sashing would detract from the bold pattern. I would add a border if you want it larger, otherwise, it is stunning as is.

    Pretty quilt. Do you mean around the individual blocks or around the quilt? Individual blocks, no. Entire quilt, yes, if you want to make it bigger.
    A quilt is like a good life. It's full of mistakes, but, in the end, it looks pretty good.

    In my opinion sashing would ruin the looks of it. I would put at least one border around it.
