    I thought grey corner stones and said blah, but I can see it now. Everyone say's compare your other fabrics to see how one will work. I say head down to Home Depot and pick up some free paint samples.

    I do love gray, and gray goes with everything! It would definitely give the quilt a different feel than white would, more modern and less girly, in my opinion. But it just depends on your preference! The paint swatches are a great idea!

    I love what you are planning to do with it. White would look great.

    I'm sitting on the side of the white crew. I think it will have a light and airy look and will be lovely.
    Beautiful fabric!
    I really need to get off the exclamation point.
    It may give people the idea that I'm bright and cheerful all the time....

    That was my thought as well.

    I vote for white sashing and gray cornerstones.

    You could use a white Honey Bun. I think they sell them here at MSQC.

    I like the idea of the white with colored blocks in the corners......nice accent to your pretty fabrics.
