    Love it, great colours, even though the blocks are different it is so well balanced in the layout, great job.

    Very pretty, I love the idea of a thin blue border that matches the sashing.

    I'd add the blue around the outer edge to complete the sashing look. Unless it needs to be larger, I don't see the need for any additional border after that, but you could certainly add a border of the original fabric as a delightful finishing touch.

    I love your blocks... I think the blue sashing would be great around the quilt and maybe another border using the original fabric..

    Would you post a picture of the fabric you used. I love the before and after with these stack and whack, and OBW. This looks great.

    I think I would do a border the same color as the sashing.

    My thoughts exactly.

    Love the quilt as is, though.

    I am making k hot pads for my family reunion. This is a fun way to make something the same yet different. I really look at fabric differently. The designs are endless. Thank you for sharing and giving new ideas to others. Great job!

    I am always intrigued with these...have made a few and they come out so differently. Yours is very pretty! Bright and cherry.

    AMAZING!!!! I love it. Great job. I think you should make the blue border as several gals suggested here.

    I would use a small cream border then a larger blue. Love the colors.

    I totally agree with Tartan. Spectacular! I would also like to see the original fabric if you have any.
