    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.

    I like the sashing because of it's many coordinating colors.

    Very very pretty quilt. I personally like it sashed, but it is beautiful no matter.

    They look beautiful both ways, but I would do sashing just to add a little more to the size. I like oversized blankets myself

    I say go with the sashing, too. I think it helps tie in the border and it is such soft, pastel looking fabric. Please show us when it is finished. Lucky baby!

    Sash - I think it creates a better look.
