    What do you think, should I leave it without the black sashing, or have you got another idea, not black, some other colour???
    Thanks for your feed-back :D

    I'm not sure about the black...what does a really dark brown look like? I love the colors and the blocks.

    Hmmm I think I agree that is needs a sashing and I think sunflower is spot on with more of a dark brown. I think that will match your current colors better.

    Good luck! Can't wait to see it finished.

    Cheers!

    I think the black is too stark. Maybe if it were thinner strips.

    The widest black sashing is too bold--it isolates your blocks from one another. The narrowest (half inch/3/4 inch?) is better, but since you are featuring so many autumn and nature colors in your squares, why not try a dark brown. It will give your quilt that architectural look, and still remain in your color scheme of browns, tans, creams...

    Sorry, don't know the name, it was a BOM in our group, very easy and I made it with scraps but I want to make another one sometimes with a material with pattern and a plain matching one, all blocks que same this time. :lol:

    I think I will leave it for a while and see if I can find something in autumn/earthy colours next time I go shopping. I myself always thought I would use the black but now looking at it, I find it very "harsh" to the other colours.
    Thanks for your help!!!

    Nice quilt! I think the black will work but I'd make it narrow.

    If you use sashing, I agree I think the black is kind of harsh. A rusty/orangy/brown kind of color I think might work better. That being said, I do kind of like the waffle-look of it without the sashing. I'm wondering it you could still keep that kind of look by making your sashing fairly narrow. Love the pattern...that's so cool. And I really like the way you've combined the colors you used!

    I agree!!! (with Granny)

    Black sashing would work but it should be thin. So the color doesn't take over.

    You could do the binding in black!

    Good luck!!

    I think it needs sashing not sure black is it. I would go Autumm like the others have said and the sunflowers would be pretty. I have done that before.

    I, too, like the basketweave look it has without the sashing. Nice colors! Karen
