    I have been trying to decide what kind of sashing and border to do on this for days now and can't come to a decision. Would it look good with the yellow with pink cornerstones or pink with yellow cornerstones for the sashing? or something compeltely different. Any ideas?

    Hmm.. what about using a neutral .. like dk gray or black and alternate the cornerstones of fabric from all 4 cards?
    Although either combination you mentioned would work.

    Lay the blocks out on top of the pink leaving however many inches between that you were think of making the sashing and put yellow squares for the cornerstones and then do the reverse. Take a picture of each way to see what color placement you like best. Blocks look good. Maybe just a black sashing?

    My personal preference would be to use the blue for the strips and the gold for cornerstones......I also like the idea of the black with multi color cornerstones :D

    I would do black and the corner stones, in the four corner as a 4 patch block, then the binding use strips of every color end to end and it would really cool going around the black. Good luck, please post when done.

    I like this idea, sounds like those blocks would practically pop right off the quilt.

    Black with cornerstone block on the four colors included in the quilt. That will give the quilt some asymetry, but interest.

    I reallky like your blocks, but I am too visual to be able to give an opinion. I lay them out and audition before I decide.

    Boy that one is a tough one. I would be auditioning a bunch of dif stuff. I think I would stick with the jewel tone look however.

    Ok I layed a few out on black piece of fabric with a colored cornerstone. I don't have any other black fabric right now. But I can pick some up next week. How does this look?

    I would like to see a fabric with pink, blue, green & yellow in it. I'm not sure if it would look good. If they were my blocks, I would take one to the fabric store and audition some printed fabric with those colors. I'm looking at a striped fabric that I have with those colors in it, thinking something like it would be good.

    I love the way you laid it out with black sashing and 4 patch in the corners. Beautiful blocks.

    I agree....black would be stunning, and use all 4 colors for cornerstones. Be sure to post a photo when you're finished....thanks for sharing.

    If you decide to do the black with the 4 patch cornerstone, I would rotate the blocks and the 4 patches, so that the color in the block was closest to the same color in the cornerstone (if that makes sense). In your picture the blocks on the right are the the way I would place the color in the cornerstone, where on the left they aren't. I think that would give the quilt some symmetry.

    This is one of the reasons I love my EQ... I can recreate the blocks in the program, and play around with different ideas on what I want for sashing, borders etc until I find something I like.

    Love the pic of the 4-patch cornerstones and black sashing. That's a winner in my book.
