I am making a 3-d pinwheel quilt for my granddaughter. I can't decide if I should sash each block or not. Any suggestions?

The print fabric will also be the backing. Thanks!

Awesome blocks!

I really think the sashing adds something to it.

they both look fabulous; i think it's all up to you what you like the best...so hard to make those decisions! i think i like the one WITH the sashing the best tho if i had to pick. either way, it's going to be a beauty!

Tough call...it's pretty both ways! Do you need it to be bigger? If so, you can add the sashing. It will be beautiful whichever way you choose to finish it.

I like it WITH sashing. The fabric you've chosen pulls all the pinwheel colors together. But in the end, whatever looks good to you is what counts.
