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.
Darling baby quilt...like the polka dots without sashing.
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.
