    Give me your honest oponion , Please.
    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.

    I would add a sashing similar in color to the center squares. It's going to be a beautiful quilt.

    These are beautiful blocks. I think sashing would really make them pop.

    Sashing would give it a whole new pattern. It's only a matter of what you like best. Either way is super nice. If you want a bigger quilt then add sashing.

    Looks good as is. How about trying to lay out some black bias tape and see if a "stained glass" effect is what you want.

    I just got my order of batik fat quarters from Connecting Threads. Oh my, how beautiful they are. This will be a great project for me to use them.

    I think a narrow black sashing would be very pretty.

    me, I wouldn't do sashing. I would also try to arange the blocks so that the squares are near like colors to make a larger square of similar color. just my two cents.

    Those are beautiful blocks. I think I would do the sashing - to make each block a unique part of your quilt.

    I like it. I would do without the sashing, and maybe a wider (6 inch) outside black border. If you really want sashing, black would be my choice. Nice!!

    I think sashing would tie it together and it would be really a good look.

    they are beautiful !! i think I like the suggestion of arranging the blocks so like colors make a center of 4 blocks. Make a bunch more, lay them out on the floor and then look at them thru the wrong end of binoculars. You will see the whole as if it was at a distance. Much easier to judge how the overall effect is

    Keep up what you are doing -- they are great

    I would try looking at it with sashing (black) before going further. I think you have a beautiful quilt there regardless of what you do. I think the black sashing would make it very dramatic and I'm all for the drama.

    They're beautiful and I'm not a batik person! I would definately put something between them. Personally...I'd prefer something dark (black) but that's just me.

    To sash or not to sash that is the question. My opinion on this pattern....if you want just the colors to stand out, sash it. But if you want the pattern created from the four corners coming together making a circle. Leave it just as it is. Put your blocks closer together to see the pattern, then you can decide. I love batik', just ordered more today, hope they come in on a day DH works. LOL
