The fabric you have for the sashing is fine... however, I'd add that blue/turquoise color too. Maybe "frame" your squares in that color, then add the granite looking fabric.

Oh, I'm terrible at this. I'm about to post a similar question! But here's my 2: The blocks have a modern, wonky feel to them. The colors are clear and nearly primary, whereas the marble fabric is muddy and indistinct. It doesn't play well with the blue geometric fabric. If it were me, I'd keep looking. That fabric will change the whole feel of the quilt. Having said that, maybe that's what you're after! If so, I'll just take my pins and go home.

This is what I think. Match the "feel" of the blocks.

Yeah, I'm leaning toward something more geometric or another batik. I love all these responses. It really makes me think!

I think you're close ... the colors are just a smidge off, and the organic feel of the mottle doens't play well with the abstract art work.

Here's a couple you might consider

Oooh ... I think this one would be awesome with your blocks. Perhaps a slightly larger white border, then this print with a wonky mitered corner.

Personally, I like it - wouldn't like a real busy print between your blocks.

Love your blocks but agree that the fabric proposed for the sashing is distracting.
