    Twelve blocks down, eighteen to go....

    Now a question for you - Because of the busy-ness of these prints, would you put a sashing between each block? I wasn't planning to until I see the blocks grouped together like this and I think that a sashing would better define each block. I am afraid that they would all run together if there were no sashing between them.

    What do you think?

    I would add a sashing in the family of the pinks that are in every square.

    I would put sashing around them, for the same reasons.

    It's very pretty, love the color choice! :thumbup:

    It would beautiful either way. Sashing would showcase each block. No sashing might create a secondary pattern or movement. Keep us posted on the progress of this quilt:)

    Beautiful! I think I'd audition a few sashings and also see what it looks like without them. You could get some great sub-patterns going on without sashings. It will be super either way.

    I would add sashing...same color each square ... but it is showing up as a RED on my old old old monitor.

    The color of the prairie points in each block is a orangy-hot pink. I know that I won't have enough of that fabric to make sashings for the whole quilt, but I think I will have enough of it for a 1 or 2 inch wide outer border.

    I do have some bright blue or yellow that I could try out as sashings though. I will try auditioning them.

    This quilt is going to be for my new granddaughter due in May.

    I think a thin black sash would really define the blocks.

    Either way. As I lean back from my monitor and squint my eyes I can see that there's a nice secondary pattern that you wouldn't necessarily get if you used sashing. Nice colors over all...I think it'll be great for your grandbaby!

    Beautiful colors! Perhaps thin black sashings would really make the colors pop. :)

    I like that yellow/gold TOT in the second row for a sashing. The Y/G in your other blocks don't seem to stand out as much as the other colors, and I think it would tie it together more.

    All of these fabrics (except for the orangy/hot pink) were from a group of fabric samples that I got at a garage sale last year. They are all from the same fabric line so the colors and designs are relatively coordinated. But I have only one piece of fabric about 9 X 12 inches of each kind.

    I am generally not fond of a "scrappy quilt" look, but for me this one works because the fabrics are coordinated.

    They're great, and I love the secondary pattern you get without a sash.

    What wonderful blocks. I love all the colors. I would use sashing between them. That's going to be a wonderful quilt.

    I think that you need to decide what you like best. Perhaps audition the blocks with some fabric that you would use for sashing and see if you like it. Either way it would look nice. Depends on whether you like it to look busy or more sedate, I think. Happy deciding!
