Default 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.
