    Pretty. I would not use sashing, I would put at least one border around it, to give it a finished look. Just me.

    Leave it like it is and add narrow inner border and a wider outer border.

    this is so nice..... sometimes for me it's "about getting to start the next quilt"... :)
    i think it depends on how well you know this neighbor... the little one will love it and hug it with or without the border and in truth,,, it's a great quilt either way... ask yourself... Am i finished yet?... you'll know!!!! :)
    Very nice wor and great fabric..

    It is gorgeous as is, but I agree with cjomomma - the only reason I use sashing on something like that is to avoid lining up seams.

    I vote for sashing between the blocks to really maximize the pinwheel design and also an outer border to frame the whole thing. Love the fabric, nice job! Post a pic of the finished quilt please.

    Your pinwheel centers are great...I had to applique a little square on the center of the pinwheels the first time I tried this. Made them really look like pinwheels, but I knew why! Got lemons...make lemonade! Oh yes, sashing or not? your choice.

    Sashing to emphasize the pinwheels.

    I think it needs sashing, b/c I saw triangles when I first saw it instead of the pinwheels. Either way it is super cute!

    I made one for my grand daughter and put a real thin sashing in between and then did a piano boarder of all the fabrics.

    I like the way the blocks interact when touching.

    I think what ever you want will be fine. The pinwheels are good colors and work well just how you have them. Lay a border strip around it and see if you like that.

    I think the skinny border will add accent.
