    Need HELP--No sashing or sashing???

    I am finishing up the squares for an Anita's Arrowhead quilt. I used western bandanas and leopard print. Now the question is, do I use sashing or not.
    This first picture is 4 blocks using the pattern of the bandanas and no sashing.

    The next one is some gold sashing, trying to blend with the leopard print and I see that I didn't set the blocks right, but am concerned about the sashing.

    And next I tried a light red

    And then I tried a darker red

    So, thanks for looking and any advice you can give me. The blocks square up at 9 inches & I will have 6 across for 54 inches and 8 down for 72 inches.

    a place where happiness lives
    and memories are sewn.

    I like the secondary pattern you get with NO sashing. You might want to play around a bit to see what you get with different arrangements.

    Interesting choices of fabrics - I like them together.

    For sashing, I liked the yellow/gold better than the orange and rust fabrics.

    I am in total agreement with bearisgray. I prefer the no sashing, but, the yellow/gold if you do sash it. Love the quilt.

    I noticed if you put them directly together that a few of the intersections will be off a bit. Would that bother you? If not the blocks do make an interesting secondary pattern. For sashing, I like the gold the best but would like it better a shade darker? I would also like to see the blocks with black sashing?

    I really like it with no sashing. The sashing seems to interfere with the design.

    If you do sashing, I like the second or I would do black.

    I generally like sashing, but in this case I'd vote for NO sashing. Looks great anyway you choose.

    No sashing here too. If you decide to go with it, use the gold one.

    I would try to find gold the same color as in the print for the sashing or the black.

    I agree - I kind of like it without sashing. If you want to use sashing I like the gold best

    Normally I love sashing, but this one is so pretty without it. So I also vote no sashing. Love the pattern & fabric you used.

    I vote no sashing. Now this is a suggestion I have, and take it for what it is worth since no one else mentioned it. You might just try the dark blue bandana for a border. Maybe a thin yellow piece in between. I think it will frame the great pattern the prints make on their own. But, what do I know????

    If you can be sure your points will match (and there will be LOTS of them), then go with no sashing - for all the reasons stated above. If you need sashing I would like to see a black fabric used.

    if the animal prints where they would meet together, dont' fit together well, I'd say sashing for sure. either way they are cute.

    I like no sashing. It gives a great deal of movement and drama
