    I'd have to play with the colors and the layout a bit more. Its really just a question of your own preference. I think a black sashing would make those beautiful batiks really pop...but you will loose the secondary pattern. I'd have to play with that pattern before I abandoned it for sashing. Do you have some fabric that you can play with on your design wall?

    My thoughts also, but I do like without sashing too. I guess the final decision will have to be yours.

    Whatever you decide on, it is going to be very pretty. I think if it were mine, I would do a sashing. Not sure which color, black or light. Just play and decide which you like.

    Those are just beautiful. You are definitely going the right way. I would put sashing on the blocks. Great job.

    How about putting them on point and use a narrow black sashing?

    I wouldn't try to color arrange them. Yes to sashing, and if you're into color, I'd like to see a purple. Black would be my second choice.

    What are you talking about? quitting? No way, your doing a great job. LOVE the blocks and if you love bright colors you could try a black and white polka sashing , it sounds scary but you might be surprised if not then others will have ideas for you, keep up the good work!

    Do these 10 minute blocks look ok or should I stop and start something else? Should I put sashing between the blocks or just sew them together. I am using batiks. Thanks in advance for comments.
    My honest opinion? I want your avatar!!!

    I would audition some sashing. Lay the blocks out on some fabric you might consider for sashing and see what it looks like.

    I like it/them and would add an extra accent to the centres - similar to a cathedral window, and fold over the edges of the centre pieces. You could put fussy cuts, embroidery or trapunto quilting pieces in that spot and I think it will finish the effect nicely.

    Why not add to the confusion? I'd add a sashing of the same fabrics that your corners are made of. Honestly, though, the fabrics are beautiful and anything you choose will work.

    I agree with Grannie Annie, the black could act as a stain glass window effect and also make each block really pop out instead of all blending together. Love this pattern and I am going to try it myself.

    They are absolutely awful. Here's what you do, pack them up and send to me at....

    Seriously, I have seen so much beauty on this board, from people who seem unsure or not quite sure of what they have created.

    Folks, there is a lot of talent on here.

    These batik squares are very nice indeed, and I like them tremendously. I think the final quilt will be a treasure.

    And my address is.....

    I would add sashing also, about the colour of your centres or audition something darker that would tie everything together ie dark purple batik. Keep us updated on your progress... it looks great so far.
