    #3 is definitely my favorite. The light tan sashings lighten up the entire quilt, and the red cornerstones add brightness. You might also want to consider quilting within a shiny thread -- maybe even a metallic if your machine can handle it -- to add additional sparkle.

    #3 and the last one are striking with a balance in contrast.

    The gold sashing seems to give the red & green an equal boost. I agree the red sashing is very Christmasy- but IMHO it seems to overwhelm the blocks and you've done a marvelous job on them so you want them to be enhanced not over shadowed I think.

    I think I like the third one with the green and red plaid cornerstones.

    I really like the last one best. #6 with the red sashing but you may want to use green as cornerstones
    A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort :lol:

    3 and 5 are nice, particularly no 3.... but please don't use the bright yellow... it kills it...

    I like those also. I especially lean toward #3. Perhaps a narrower sashing would be interesting also.

    If you feel as if the tan background is too dark, how about making 15 new blocks with a lighter tan. Then alternate the 15 new blocks with 15 original blocks. Lay them out alternatively and then you will see a nice (subtle) secondary pattern emerge. So you'll have six original blocks with dark tan left over..... Use them on the back or make a pillow case or a bureau scarf! It still really isn't too late.

    I vote for the red, I think it adds a lot of interest to the blocks.

    I like no. 3, the gold with the red plaid cornerstones. It makes me happy to look at it and the plaid is so Christmassy.

    It is a beautiful quilt. I like the darker sashing.

    Like the red sashing but not the yellow cornerstones. I would suggest the green

    My vote would be for the first one. It seems lighter and brighter.

    Definitely # 3 with the gold sashing! Second choice would be the last one.

    Either the 3rd or last sashing pic. The other sashing fabrics are either too light or too dark. Nicely done

    I like picture #3 best. That was my first thought and I'm sticking with it. Pretty fabrics.

    Me too. It brings out the colors and brightens it up without being too glaring!!
