    Default What do you like best

    These blocks are turning out busy, but I like the scrappy vintage feel. Should they have scrappy sashing? Should I incorporate hsts in the sashing? No sashing? or something else?

    I love your scrappy blocks! I think I would go with the narrow sashing minus the hst bc they kind of fight the star blocks and make it look a little too busy.

    I like the narrow medium gray sashing, but without the hst's. The blocks are busy so IMO the plain sashing brings calmness.

    I think the quilt looks better with a plain sashing. As a bonus, you won't have to be so precise with matching the star points perfectly. I agree with the others that the HSTs are overpowering. Love those scrappy stars!

    like the second picture, but would try to put a less power block between the yellow spot star and the strips star on rhs
    all depends on what your desired finished size is. have fun
