    I am making this disappearing nine patch for my daughter. I can't decide on a sash. I like the drama of the black but also like how the white brightens the quilt. Any suggestions?

    with white?

    If you like the white, maybe you can use it for the corner stones, but I think you should use the black for the sashing.

    i like the white - its not such a harsh line between the blocks like the black is - it just looks like an extension of the blocks.

    the white looks like it belongs more. like it's part of the design. the black is fine but it just looks more like it separates the blocks. either one is OK.

    I keep going back and forth. I like the black, but I would like it more narrow. It's too wide for my taste

    They're both pretty though

    The black makes it much more contemporary to me......but, that's just my opinion.....it's an awesome quilt no matter which sashing you choose.

    I like the way the black makes the other colors pop.

    The black separates the blocks, and really sets them off, and on the other hand, the white blends the blocks together, and makes the quilt look like one big unit. Either one is gorgeous. I want to make a red, black and white quilt some day, and your quilt really makes me want to do it. Gorgeous either way you finish it.

    Black. The white kinda makes it too white.
