    Thanks, I have actually changed my layout to the blocks with the red squares framing the quilt and it looks much better.

    Re: Does this need sashing?

    I opened this post yesterday and saw mostly green blocks. Today, I opened it and at first look, I saw the blue first. I think that I would continue with the blue and red squares framing the quilt and then a binding. Since I'm partial to stripe bindings, I would try that first. Red and white or black and white or the obvious choice of red. But I think I would give a stipe a try just to add something different.

    I think a sashing would break it up a bit and compliment the adorable fabric.
    Lucky grandson!!!

    It doesn't NEED it, but a thin red border would frame it well

    I agree with Jean...a thin red border and then I would use some of the printed fabric and then lastly a border of the green material. Very cute quilt...your grandson is sure to love it.

    I think some thin red sashing would look lovely, but........no, it doesn't need it. It looks great as it is and to me, the red squares stand out quite well. Either way, it's lovely and I love that fabric.

    Maybe a sashing would be good. The little red squares seem to get lost in the sea of blue and the print. Maybe a thin red strip.

    About the sideways picture--are you using an ipad? Always take the picture landscape with the start button on the right, then they won't be sideways or upside down.

    Does this need sashing?

    I am making this for my Grandson's 3rd birthday. I can't decide if it needs sashing and if so what colour? The pattern I was copying does not have it. I need to decide so I know how many more rows to do. I was going to add a thin red border then green or just a wider red border.
    Opinions please, thanks in advance.
    Picture sideways again, does anybody know why this happens?
