    Well, I am torn. I think it needs either green or gold between the blocks but I also kinda like it with nothing. Thoughts from the group, please.

    I think it needs sashing. What color you need to audition it out. I would not go without sashing on those beautiful fan blocks. You want them framed so the eye will be compelled to flow from block to block and rest on individual fans.

    I'm personally a fan of using some green in between the blocks. I think it would really bring out the colors you are using.

    I think the gold would be a good choice, however depending on the shade of green that might be good too. Audit them. I would make the sashing very narrow.

    Not sure about the pink but you should try out a few colours just lay a colour under the squares if you don't like it pick another till you do. looking forward the the final results

    I think green sashing would be good.
    The green or any sashing that you use I would
    not have it so overly bright as to take away
    from those gorgeous blocks.
    Moss green might work.

    Why not use a narrow border of the fabric in the fans? If you did it real narrow (about a 1/2" finished, it would compliment the fans rather than take away from them.

    Your blocks are beautiful. :thumbup:

    Beautiful. Definately needs sashing, gold might make it look very elegant. Try some out of both green and gold and see which one you like best.
    Good luck!

    I think I'd either go with green or gold sashing.... I like the way sashing generally sets off the blocks. These blocks are gorgeous!

    I agree with green, but you'll know after you audition using fan fabric print, or pink, or gold, in a narrow sashing. Blocks are beautiful-keep them the focus.

    Needs sashing, but the color is up to you. IMO gold would really make those fans pop.

    Always marching to another drummer... LOL
    I would piece them as is and do some nice decorative stitching down each side of the seams... in color of choice... for me it would be cream, silver grey, or gold...just a thought! B

    well, I bought the fabric pre-cut on ebay so there is no more. I was thinking green or gold because that's already in there and would be simpler to match. I really like the fans, though!
