    I started this over the weekend. I'm thinking of adding a narrow white sashing around each block. What do you think?
    Sorry the pictures are kind of blurry.

    First group, these are stacked up. I have a total of 25 blocks so far.

    I think white would be pretty. I'm also jealous that you just started it over the weekend and have so much to show for it!

    I could definitely see a 1" sashing in white, then a larger 3-4" white border all around.

    I thinks a white sashing would complement it nicely!

    I vote for the white sashing also. Nice job so far! I am sure it is going to be an awesome quilt.

    Thanks for helping me decide. It will have 1" sashings between the blocks and a 3" white border. Now I think I'll choose one of the fabrics to make the binding....but which one? I like them all. :roll:

    I would use a scrappy binding if you like them all! :lol: Especially fetching when it is a bias binding! :lol:

    I can't help thinking how wonderful these would be set on point with your white or even black. The white will make it look like the center is hollow.

    Very pretty blocks. Nice and cheery.

    Such "happy colours" white will look stunning....I am always awed about how much can be achieved by some in such a short space of time!

    I love your scrappy looking blocks and the white sashing with a wider white border would look absolutely stunning.

    I know I'll probably be in the minority here but because of all the colors I could also see a red sashing to pull out all the red in the squares. JMHO. I love color. Either way, it will be a beautiful quilt. Love all the different fabrics.

    Red would be funky but white would give a more traditional look and I'm a trad girl! :D And I love Shemjo's idea of a scrappy binding. Can't wait to see this done, probably by next weekend the rate you're going! :D
