    Great effect! Looks like a strip of sashing is missing between the second and third blocks in the fifth row from the left. Would hate it if it was mine and I'd completed assembling the entire quilt before I noticed the oversight. I love the overall effect and believe an orange border would be pretty. Great work.

    I can't tell if your dark is black or not but I'd use that to frame it out and the maybe a small border of one of the brighter colors and bind it in the black. It's looking good.

    That's a neat quilt! I like the tan sashing. It gives the quilt the right amount of spark.

    After looking again at your quilt, I think a black border directly on your quilt center would take the shadow away from the outer blocks, I'd do a bright 2" border then do the black. I think black borders really frame a quilt out that already has black in it. Just my humble opinion, and what do I know!!

    Having the lighter color for sashing gives depth to your quilt and looks great!
    How about just trying a color inbetween the two shades of peach. Different enough so neither of them blend into the sashing? How about grey?

    I always have to audition lots of fabrics before I can choose!
    peace :D

    Hope to get my quilt finished this week or for sure on the weekend as i bought green to do for the border.I took it to the quilt shop and we tried different colors and the Green was the best match for it . And i got luckly as the lady who does my long arm quilting was there so she got to see what i was making and I will be droppig it off for her to a picture of it after it is all Quilted . I am excited to get it all done as will be my first Queen quilt and is going on my own BED and my husband likes the colors too - was his idea to do earthy colors ...

    I like it with the sashing and for binding I would choose the fabric that is in the bottom left corner of the second picture, it's hard tell if that is orange or yellow or cream since what you are refer to tan sashing appears white in the photos. Regardless of what you choose it's sure to be awesome.
