    I would use the black with the stripe going horizontal on the sides and vertical top and bottom. I also used cornerstones. Just finished a quilt doing that. Looks great.

    I like others, like the roses, red binding.

    I like the first one. The black and white strips will likely be a pain in the but and the red is too bright. I would however put a thin red border.

    If you can keep the stripes straightly, I prefer that one.

    I would use the flower as the sashings and the stripe as the border

    I love the first one, makes the quilt look cuddly and feminine. The other two would be great as well.

    I agree with MawmawB - Even though I love red and I love flowers, for this combination I prefer the black and white strips - although I'm sure any of the possibilities will result in a beautiful quilt!

    What about solid black and then the roses for the border? My half cent idea! Looks great with any of these.

    Hi,
    I like the black flower print and the red. Your blocks are very pretty.

    I like the black flowered one the best. I think the stripes would be very hard to keep straight for sashing (I know it would be impossible for me!). Good luck deciding!

    Thats what I am thinking too. First impression was the 1st one. Went back to look again and I still like the 1st one.

    I like the black and white stripe for sashing and might use the black with roses as an outside border.

    :D Ditto, Love the block. You did really well. What about the small black/gray squares? What ever you use I know that it will look really, really good.

    I vote for the stripe, or the red. I think the print is too busy to also be used in the sashing, but that's just me. With all the fabrics that pretty, anything you choose will be great!

    I like the black stripe for the sashing, but maybe consider a red cornerstone at the corner of each block. Then maybe a thin red inner border with the black floral as the second border. Be sure to post a picture when you've made your decision! It's going to be wonderful no matter which way you go.
