WIP Wednesday: To Sash or Not To Sash?

That is the question.


Here's one of several Works-In-Progress that I would love to finish.  Do you think I should add a small white sashing between each hexagon or do you think I could just stitch them together as-is?

And this is what you do with all of the little scraps left over . . .

And this is what happens when you forget that you left a quilt on the "design floor" when destructo-baby wakes up.

That quilt is SO beautiful! Such talent you have. I love the colors. My vote is to leave it as it is. It's perfect!

Even though the colors are bright, I think leaving it as it is makes it warmer looking, and adding the white sashing brightens it. So it's what you want it to look like. Either way is very pretty!

I like the boldness, of the colors, without adding white. But I understand adding the sashing will make it larger, quicker, LOL! Maybe you want to lay it out on a white sheet and photograph it that way, too. I *see* things much clear~er in a photograph!

I love white quilts, but in this case, I would say "not to sash". That's my vote. Do you have a pattern that you are working from? I love hexagon quilts and would love to tackle a similar project.

heheeee At least you have a good shot to look at when you get around to laying them out again.

I, too, like them together like this. Have you tried laying them out on some white yardage or a white sheet to see if you like that? Snap a shot, then you can compare the effect side-by-side on your computer!
