    Hello, ladies and gents.

    I was originally going to put sashing between all of my blocks. I laid it out in the kitchen floor, and somewhat like the choppy look that's left by only having sporadic navy strips.

    What do you think? Leave it as-is for something different or go forward with the sashing as originally planned?

    :mrgreen: I did notice the block that I have turned the wrong direction, by the way...and please forgive my poor MS Paint skills.

    Thanks in advance.

    I like the one with sashing also-it really makes your blocks and colors pop. Beautiful quilt.

    That's what I thought the response would be, but I was second guessing myself.

    Thanks everyone.

    I like it - how big were your blocks before you cut them up?

    Those colors are amazing. Both look good to me. It is up to you. The sashing adds a pop to the colors.

    The 9 patches were 19" square, including the navy between the blocks.

    I like the sashing. It gives it more of a almost window stained glass type effect

    Sashing makes it look very busy IMHO -still pretty though. I just like no sashing better.

    I like the sashing too, and agree it gives it a stained glass look. But, opinions are like, er,... NOSES! Everyone has one! LOL. It's what you like that really counts. There is no right or wrong. Good luck and be sure and post a pic of the finished product. It's looking good!

    btw, sashing makes it nice, like one quilter said, 'stained glass'
