    My question is, Is there too much white in the layer cake blocks to use white sashing? I'm thinking maybe there is. Should I use different color sashing? Ideas please

    Any other ideas on what pattern would work well with this layer cake?

    Thanks!

    I think white sashing would be good because another color, if too strong, would overpower the prints in the layer cake.

    One thing you might try is laying a few pieces of the fabric on different colored solids to see what looks best. I think your layer cake would look great in the pattern you showed.

    I think the white is your best bet, or a soft aqua or pink.

    I would try laying the blocks on the white and other colors too. I'm afraid your sashing won't show up, but that depends on what look you want.

    Oooo I love that! I think it would be perfect with white!

    I have some yardage that I don't want to cut up to small and have been keeping my eyes out for the perfect pattern. I finally think this is the one! Is it from the Moda shop?

    Thanks for all the quick replies so far! Keep them coming

    I found the pattern here; Diary of a Quilter - a quilt blog: Shop Amy Smart Quilt Patterns

    I think the white would look best. It would be hard to find another color that would contrast and show up well against all the colors in that layer cake - assuming you don't want to go with black!

    I'm terrible at coming up with color combos. It's why I have so much fabric and no idea what to do with it When I first saw the fabric I wondered about a light gray. Everyone let me know how off I am with that idea.

    Thanks

    I love the white with it, just use a narrow sashing, and the white won't overpower the print.

    You guys are great! I'm really happy you think the white will work. I did think about gray also, but I was thinking I'd make the cornerstones gray. I was planning on doing a 1" or 1.5" sashing.
