    Here are a couple of mock ups that AgapeStitches put together for me. Which do you like? Or should I do it without sashing?

    I like the red the best. I love the block itself, very beautiful.

    I personally like the red! IMO, the black has nothing to tie it in with the blocks. White would be my 2nd choice. Seems to me the blue dulls the quilt too much.

    Edit: I wonder if a slightly narrower sashing would make a difference? Seems to me that the sashing width almost overpowers the very intricate blocks. Maybe a red sashing width more in keeping with the width of the red in the blocks?

    If you're going to use sashing, I'd agree that the red is the best. But I think the blocks are super without sashing as well. Maybe a compromise -- cluster the blocks with 4 together, then sashing in between those large squares.

    This block is amazing. How many pieces are in it anyway? How many have you made? You are dogged, Mamma!

    IMHO I would love to see the secondary pattern develop without sashing. I love the red sashing and I would use that as an inner border. However there will be as nany opinions as quilters so do what makes you happiest.

    I agree with many already that if you use sashing, the red is great. I think it would look great without sashing as well. Or put 4 blocks together to make a larger block and then the sashing. And a narrower sashing might also be something to consider. These blocks are just wonderful!!!!

    Those are lovely blocks and well done. I too wonder about the cluster effect of 4 together? Then what about a flange around in the raspberry pink? then the red?

    For sure, the red is the choice of the ones you have shown.

    Actually I think the white would be fabulous with a great quilting design on it.... The red is very pretty, but if you want the look to be a little less pronounced, go with the white...

    Love the block. And I think the red or white would look stunning. You did a excellent job on those blocks. Very nice.

    I'm in the minority here but I like the blue best. The white dulls it and the
    black and red distract too much from the beautiful blocks. JMHO. :-D
    It all depends on what look you're after.
