    I prefer the gold sashing. I think it really brings some life to your quilt. I like the colors and if you prefer a more subtle look, I think that would be ok too.

    I like the red too. Your fabric is beautiful, and the pattern is nice too. I can't wait to see the finished quilt.

    I like the red sashing with gold cornerstones. Pretty quilt! - Makes me long for cooler temps - tired of these high 90s we have been having!

    I like #3 and all plaid cornerstones. 2nd choice is red sashing. Love the quilt.

    I like #3, it seems to brighten up the beautiful quilt blocks. Second best is #6 if being truly "Christmasy" is your aim. Whatever you choose, your quilt is going to be beautiful, your work is excellent.

    I agree, but I would use the white/green as cornerstones.

    I think any one of the darker ones will work fine. The white is just too stark. You might think about adding more interest by doing stars in the sashing.

    I like the narrow red sashing with green cornerstones. I don't care for the lighter colors at all with it.
    The blocks have a warm and cozy feel.

    I think that sometimes 'bright' and/or 'popping' is unnecessary and/or jarring to a warm, cozy effect.

    #3, the light color

    I really like #3, as it lightens up the whole quilt.

    I prefer the green with yellow gold centers, or the blocks put together without sashing.

    Like 1 but the red really pops and is striking.

    Of course I'm going to be different and say I like #4. Then I'd fmq, with gold thread, in the light cornerstones (is that the right term?)
    You know that feeling when you've finished all your quilting projects and your studio is perfectly clean???? Me neither.

    It's not how fast you sew, it's how well you sew fast! Wait, I think that's supposed to be MOW!

    I agree that the first is too light, and the third appeals to me the most for brightening up the quilt. However, I do like the red also, if you don't mind it staying in the darker tones.
