All along I thought the color I would use for sashing for these star blocks was red. Specifically, these two red striped fabrics with the stripes going cross-ways between the blocks. (They're not all laid out that way below because the fabric isn't cut.)
I placed some blocks against a mix of browns. Hmmm. Brown adds a different kind of warmth. My husband likes the red because it's brighter but brighter isn't necessarily better. I like the darkest brown on the far right. But for the whole quilt? Will I like it when it's finished? Will I like it for years and years?
How do you choose sashing colors and widths?
