    I like it without. It forms a nice secondary design.

    I like the secondary design it makes without the sashing, but they will be pretty either way. I agree I don't like the yellow.

    That's a lovely pattern. Personally, I would not use the strips between the blocks, it detracts from the delicate beauty of this piece of art. And I agree, the yellow does not do it justice. This is a piece that will be admired for a long, long time.
    Please show it to us when it's finished, we all love to look at such pretties.

    I prefer it without the yellow sashing. It forms a real pretty dresdan plate design in the middle. Very pretty! :thumbup:

    I agree, without. And yellow would be ok, but just not that particular yellow.

    I concur - without sashing and definitely - even though the yellow is lovely - no yellow with the other blocks.

    That's a lot of work. Great job.
