    Oh those are so nice! There are so many nice colors you could pick for the sashing that would make your plates stand out. Can't wait to see what you pick!!

        Sorry I spelled your name wrong. lol I put mine on muslin and I'm going to frame and hang them or make pillows.
        My friend hung hers by putting it into an embroidery hoop. It looks really good that way. Just an idea. Break a stitch, Jan

            Very pretty but QAYG? What does that mean?
            To stitch or not to stitch... There is no question.

                    Thank you! On the black it was too severe, like white, which I don't wanna do coz they're always done that way. I did like Navy but want a tone-on-tone, just can't find one ... yet

                        I may have mentioned before I get very bored at work so I had a play around with backgrounds and sashing for your blocks. I think I'm in a patriotic mood (Yay for England and USA both getting through to the next round of the world cup!) because I think the blue and red really work.

                        The blue is the darkest blue from the patterns (the outlining on the flowers) and the red is the bright red from the petals. I think it really makes the patterns pop.

                        Your 'plates' look amazing. I'm sure the quilt will be spectacular whichever colour you go with x

                          HA! That's what I had in mind, navy blue w/red sashing and navy blue bocks in the corners or stars, but then thought the stars too much lol! Glad you're bored at work! I always want to call you Jane, for some reason, anyways, thank you jrchapman!

                              CUTE! Okay, Jill then, thank you for that! Let me ask you this then, Jill, what do you think of the navy blue back ground, red sashing and either red or yellow for the center of the plates?
