These are my first six blocks.  What color sashing do you think would look good?  These are my options for borders.  Which one looks best?  I think I'll call it, "Monkeying Around". ;)

I like it without sashing. So cute!

I agree.  I like it without any sashing.  If feel you want/need separation, use more of that black/white checker fabric as sashing.

After zooming in, make that dark brown with white dots as sashing.

Absolutely adorable. Perfect baby blanket.

Mike, I had to laugh at your comments.  It does look black and white in the picture at that distance.  

No sashing seems to be the concensus so far.  I'm afraid if I added more of the background in between, I would mess up the neat sub-pattern.  Need to get my other six blocks put together and decide.

I definately agree with the no-sashing.  Dotted fabric -- dotted-line background between blocks is perfect.  Sashing might spoil the effect.

I thought I liked mine without the sashing until I put it in.  Sashing adds a pop to the whole thing - at least on mine.

Your quilt is absolutely precious, Tara.  Love the polka dots.

It's very cute. i would like to see the fabric on the lower end used for sashing. i would pair it with dark brown cornerstones. The top fabric would be great for borders.
