Design Wall Monday

The design wall still has blocks for the Y2K, and then some additional yardage as I was auditioning colors  to use for sashing yesterday. You can see why using a print background to get a feel for a gray (or whatever) sash didn’t work, and why I resorted to Photoshop.

Please take a look at yesterday’s post and give me your opinion on the best sashing color to use.http://goingtopieces-gail.blogspot.com/2011/07/input-needed-please.html

and then check out JudyL’s page to see what many talented quilters have on their design walls.

Really nice blocks! I like the grey idea. Actually I like all the mid-tones. I agree that the black and even the red is a bit harsh. Beyond that I think it's more a matter of deciding what color quilt you want - whatever color the sashing is the quilt will "read" as.

Gail -- I love the red but then I am definitely a red person. (Or at least I love the color red.) The one shown looks like a lovely brick red and the blocks look good with it. But I also like the navy blue which to me is more of a cadet/royal blue on my computer. The grey is ok but doesn't float my boat, so to speak. The cheddar is fun too but I think I prefer a dark fabric for the sashing. Good luck finding the color you finally decide upon. And good for you for finishing your YK2. (note to self, glad I didn't start one of these!)

I went back and looked at your color choices and I really like the dark red. This is really funny because I am NOT a red person. But the red really brings out the colors in your squares.

I liked quite a few, but the cheddar was the standout for me.
