These blocks are absolutely stunning.  There are several methods for joining quilt as you go blocks.  You could probably find some one utube.....I personally think they would be beautiful with a sashing in between the blocks.

Jeanine:
would love a visual of that technique.  I see the front seam but not how to do the back.  I'm sure it is easier than I am making it out to be.

  it is very easy.  you just turn it over, smooth  the batt and backing, trim them. the batt on one block will butt up against the other block.   trim the backing so there is a 1/2 inch over lap.       fold one side of the back  1/4 inch over the other, make sure it is smooth, pin and  and whip stitch.

   my quilt as you go is at the studio, i will dig it out  for you this week      gini

I was thinking I wanted to sash them but don't want to detract from the blocks.  The blocks are all bright colors:  purple, teal, orange, pink, blues, greens.  What would you sash it with that wouldn't ruin the quilt.  I love black with the brights but would that take away from the blocks.  If I found the right black tone on tone instead of a solid, it might work.  A lighter gray?  I'm not sure.

I pictured black.  I think it will make all the colors of the appliques really pop and set them apart.  Whatever you do I know it will be beautiful.;

jeanine, i would use a sash the same color of the backgrounds.  part of the charm of a hawaiian quilt is the echo quilting, which would go out into the sash.      gini

And in looking at the quilt as you go tutorial, it would be nice if the back and the backing were the same since some of the backing ends up on top.  I'm intrigued now.

I like the sashing on that quilt but it is all one color.  Maybe I'll just make 11 pillows shams!  LOL
