    I am hoping to finish this top today but I can't decide which colors work best. I like them both but............... I will load 2 pictures of each so give me a couple of minutes.

    purple dots on purple for sashing. It is lighter then the picture.

    Put the purple next to the blocks, add a small border of pink and then a larger border of butterflies.

    Use all three.

    That is cute!! I like the pink sashing, makes my eye see the blocks not the sashing. Pretty back fabric.

    I agree with Sapphire, I like the pink. But I think the purple would be a pretty binding or outer border. Love your color choices!

    I love the pink too. The purple draws your eyes away from your lovely blocks! IMHO :thumbup:

    I agree. Any "girly" girl would love it either way.

    Looks like the pink is gonna win. I will watch for ten more minutes then start cutting the sashing but ironing it first.

    Ok, I will be different. I like the purple better. The pink "blends" in too much with the blocks. The purple sets them off, IMHO

    Looks like the pink wins. I really like the idea of using the purple for binding.
    Thank you everyone for helping me out here.

    IMHO the blocks get lost in the pink and pop on the purple. Just depends on how you want to "present" them.
