    Ok here is what I have decided to do after all the blocks are finished, boy it takes a long time to do one of these blocks...LOL

    Oh should I put squares on the sashing and if so red, white dot, or just leave plain???

    I'm thinking maybe adding some white as a border too! (what to do! what to do!)

    I like the stripe, but i would only use it if you had all the stripes in the stars going in one direction,. Not necessarily in the same direction as the sashing, but it is a bit distracting to have them going different dirrections, for me anyway

    No white borders please... and no red binding... there is a lot of red in it already... some red is lovely but it can be overdone...

    Looking great! I would go red and the red binding looks just right.

    Oh Joy....you might not want to see my current quilt...my husband picked the sashing and backing and it's red, red and red :lol:

    Red sashing, print border and strip binding. Or, just layer them in different ways and see what sooths the soul!

    Well, I pin a white boarder to see how it would look. What do you think (yes or no)

    Oh, I like it how you have done it last. You have had so many opinions....making the border decision is always the hardest part for me. Your blocks are beautiful.

    I like the first one...but the second is good too...they both give it a very different look. Keep us posted.

    I am going to contrary, I think red for inner border and black/white outer border.

    It looks awesome!
    Hope we get to see it completed.
    I really like the striped sashing with the small red blocks.
