To sash or not to sash?

I've been working on my stash buster quilt that I posted in scrapaholic : ).  I finally finished the blocks.  Hooray!  It just isn't the size I want it to be.  Hmmmm..... Sashing to the rescue!

This picture is the before picture (before sashes were added, that is!)  I love how the pattern really stands out.  Will the pattern be as vivid if I add sashing?  I'll let you be the judge.

What do you think???  The pattern seems to pop more with the sashing!  Do you agree?

Maybe I should back up a little bit.  Sashing is the addition of strips between the quilt blocks.  The sashes frame the blocks.  Think about a window.  The glass panes are seperated by the panes.  Do the panes detract from the view?  I guess that depends on what the view is.

I think I like the sashing.  It's going to stay.  Next step, borders!

Thanks for reading my blog.  If you like the posts, please share with your friends.

I hope you have a creative adventure today!
