These are the fabric choices for the quilt. I will be putting sashing and small blocks between the floral squares. Not sure of the color of the sashing. White is too stark. I'd love suggestions. The sashing will be a solid color.

I wish I had another block of the golden yellow, but that is all I have large enough for this quilt. The blocks are going to be 6 inch in size. They were cut at 6 1/2 inches. The sashing will be cut at 1 1/2 inches. The same with the small blocks.

I am a Quilter at heart. I love to play with fabrics, patterns and colors. Recently I have discovered I enjoy doing applique. I love making pictures. Using a sewing machine is much easier than counted cross stitch or oil painting for me. I enjoy landscape quilting as well. I am working on my first applique project in the spring of 2014.

Oh my stars, those are GORGEOUS fabrics!! One more beautiful than the next.

How about black sashing? It would make those colors pop. Kona now makes a honeybun (1 1/2" wide) in black, and while rather expensive it would save a lot of cutting.

This is going to sparkle! How about (pale) blue sashing? So the squares look like they're floating in the sky or on water.

How fun!! I like blue also..or else the shade of yellow in the middle of some of the flowers...that would tie all the yellows together and make it less noticeable that you only have the one brite yellow square....

I think a dark green would be nice. Like a tropic forest, and it would still make the colors pop.

With a great wardrobe that's still in the flat-fabric stage.

Thank you so much....Arm and shoulder are mostly healed and I finally think I've got this retirement thing figured out in my mind....I just bought two new quilt books and made another trip to the quilt shop...Mug rugs in the machine....

YAY! It looks FABULOUS!!!

For sashing, you have to decide of you want a BOLD contrast, then it would need to be a dark fabric. Like the deep green suggestion.

I would also suggest black, because NOTHING sets off colors more gorgeously than black. What I love the most about it is it does not compete with your colors, it just enhances them. I was real hesitant to use black on my bug quilt borders, but as SOON as I put the fabrics on it, I knew it was the perfect choice.

I love yellow, so black with yellow cornerstones would be my #1 pick.

Or you can go soft and subtle. I think the beige-ey tannish rug under it shows the colors very well. How about beige with a black cornerstone?

I like the pale yellow idea, it warms the cooler blues and pulls the softer hues forward. Think tropical breezes!
