    I think I like it better without the sashing. The jewel tones touching each other make it look more rich to me.

    I still need to take a few more pics of the turtle fabric. I didn't forget

      i'm no expert but it looks like you have most of the lights to 1 side and the darks to the other was this by design? i also think i like it without the sashing.

        Yea, something doesn't feel right about the sashing. I think its the one's where there isn't enough contrast between the sashing and the block.
        Also, try rearranging them some. It feels unbalanced somehow. Like Stationarymom say's it looks like you've got lights and darks segregated on opposing sides. Mixing it up might help.

          Hiya Roxy, I think you're being way to hard on yourself. I think the fabrics are great, and love the rich tones.
          Here's what I reckon.....I personally wouldn't sash, and just move the blocks around a little. Swap a few of the darker blocks on the right over to the other side, then stand back and have a look. If you're not happy, move a few more....that would be the way I'd do it. Gives a much better overview than picking them all up and starting again.
          Hope this helps. BTW did you post pics of my little turtle buddies with their borders on?

                  With the sashing you get a less intense overall effect. I prefer with the sashing and all the colours mixed up. I'd then border it with my favourite fabric from the selection you've used and trim it with the sashing.

                    Re: Not very happy

                    Mix the colours up a bit more, and spread the lights and darks out as evenly as you can......you're gonna scream at me now, aren't you?

                    Perhaps you could number the blocks and places like a graph, and we could have a game of 'quilter's twister'......"block number 6 to A3".......LOL!

                        My first thought was that the darks are all to the right, too. I think if you mix them up a little you might be happier. Other than that, I think it's a beautiful quilt!

                          I like it! I love the bright colors and I prefer it without sashing. Don't be so hard on yourself, it's going to be a great quilt!

                            No. I would mix them up and no sashing

                              ditto what Joan said That was my first thought when I saw the pic - most of the lights are on the left

                              ........aaaaand of course I didn't read enough posts to see that you posted another layout pic - scatter your lights throughout and it will be a beauty
