    If you don't want the points to touch, just sew a quickie sash of the same color as your background (I know you said you don't want sashing...), if not, it looks fantastic! Those are gorgeous kalidascope squares!

    I agree, by putting a 1" or so sashing of the background fabric, it will blend in and not look like sashing at all but yet it will float the kaleidoscopes.

    It's coming out beautiful so far! :)

    I agree with the sashing as the same color as the background fabric

    Thanks I am going with the same background color and "sashing" it. It works in that I am quilting as 1 block at a time, so will work out better.

    am I understanding you correctly that you wanted to something other than just a strip of sashing? what about making mini blocks likes the larger ones you already have and making sashing from those? You could even reverse the colors if you wanted.

    How about taking a shape from the center, which in this case, is the triangle and using that shape in the border. It's looking great so far.
