    I think the quilting would look better without the sashing. You could go from one block to another and make it more continuous.

    I'm sure Dora won't mind either way

    I like the sashing. It brings in the color of her hair and sets off the blocks well.

    I think the design has a bit more dimension and pop without the sashing. But both look great. :)

    I agree with you, both look great. I think for a child though, color wise, I would go without the sashing.

    I like it with the sashing, but I think I would make the sashing very narrow.

    yes, I think it would look nice this way too, but I think the recipient will love it either way.

    I vote for sashing -- just a narrow strip makes everything pop.

    The Dora blocks were cut as 12.5 squares. I have all kinds of smaller squares from the corners all pressed and ready to make into something.

    I prefer the "without" --shows the theme fabric better in my book.
