    My choice is with sashing. Whatever you decide will look great! This quilt is on my list and I'm anxious to get to it.

    I love your quilt and it's wonderful colors. It is beautiful both ways but I too vote for sashing.

    The sashing really makes the pinwheels stand out. Very pretty either way!

    I just this past weekend finished a baby blanket with these same pinwheels and I did the sash, partly because I needed the blanket a little bigger but I think it makes the pinwheel stand out more. I LOVE your colors! This was such a fun square to make.

    IT IS BEAUTIFUL BOTH WAYS, BUT I DO BELIEVE THE SASHING ADDS A LITTLE MORE DEPTH. GEORGOUS....

    The quilt is beautiful, but definitely with the sashing or at least I think so! It really makes the pinwheels pop.

    Without. I think without makes it look like a more modern pattern. It's lovely BTW.

    Either way, the quilt is just beautiful! Your colors are so pretty. If you had shown me the quilt without sashing, I would have thought the quilt was gorgeous. However, having seen both I think the one with sashing is "uber" gorgeous.

    Will the sashing make it a better size?

    Well I'm going to be the odd one here. At first I liked sashing but with a second look I saw this quilt being sooooo cute with all the pinwheels together and surrounded by the white with beautiful quilting to make them stand out. I see a fanciful border all around the outside to really make the pinwheel center stand out. I want to make one! How do you make those 3D pinwheels?!? I love your colors! What a cute quilt! Have fun finishing it. What ever you do it will be spectacular.

    I like the WITH SASHING but either way is lovely although if you were to go "WITHOUT SASHING" I would frame the inside border with a small inner frame of say 1/4in to 1/5in depending on your sizes. Good job! Therese

    Agreed. I like it both ways too. Also, your border/sashing fabric is lovely. I think I slightly prefer it without the sashing. If it were my project, I might do one or more narrow inner borders of the lively pinwheel fabrics. whatever you decide, I am sure this quilt will be a joy to the child.
