    I think that this row is to dark, what do you think?

    Do you think it needs border between?

    I love the effect and your blocks are stunning! If you think it is too dark, would shifting the blue one to the other side of the red make a difference? It might work out better in that you have an alternate light and dark block? Just a thought.

    What I was talking about is the green. It looks dark when they are placed next to each other, but I think you had a good point about alternating them. Thank you.

    I don't think it's too dark, but I would add sashing I think between the blocks.

    I like the bird fabric in the middle of each block. You've done a great job of drawing attention to them.

    I like it without sashing. The green kinda looks like grass, or tree leaves for the birds. Great blocks! :thumbup:

    I love the brown one! I also love the green background. The birds are very pretty.

    Have you considered a light sashing in between each block, because the blocks are lovely.

    Very pretty. I made some wall hangings from that bird fabric. It is so nice. I like them without the border.

    I love the blocks, especially the way you put the birds in the center. Love the different colors. I think it looks great without the sashing.

    One thing to think about. If you do not add sashing .... will the seams nest or will there be too bulk. If it was my quilt I would add sashing.

    That should be "too much bulk"
