Sashing Audition

What do you think of the fabric in the centre there as a candidate for the sashing strips in my quilt? I have a decent chunk of it, it's actually a Judie Rothermel Sturbridge Village backing fabric, and one of my favourite fabrics also.

I was hoping to find something that might calm the quilt down with all the wildly coloured blocks, and this could be just the ticket. Do you like it?

I think that you need to make a few more blocks first and get over the need to calm before you choose :-)

Hard to tell on such a small area - think you need to see the big picture, x

You're both right girls, I can't even imagine why I'm thinking so far ahead already. It would be fun to put a corner together ... but I'm not really close to that either!
