    A friend asked me for advice on setting Marcia Holm's version of Cain and Able (quilerscache.com).

    Hers has white sashing and cornerstones. I don't like that. I tried several that I disliked equally and a few I found marginal. Ideas?

    In looking now, I see I forgot to extend my colors on the sashing ends for 2-5. Oops! I hope this and the questions are clear.

    the reason i like 2,4,5 is that the cornerstone and adjoining green squares make a secondary block. so i think i would go with 4 since you don't really like the white

    I like the on point layout best. It will be a beautiful quilt no matter what you choose.

    Thank you for your comments. My friend has seen them too. I should tell you that the fabric choices she made are these colors and look really good in her blocks.
