Thanks everyone for helping me decide that I really wasn't just being lazy in not wanting to add sashing!! I am one million percent happy with the outcome, and agree that the white bordering the blocks is enough to break up the blocks and give the eyes a bit of a rest. In looking at it now, I almost think adding the sashing would have diluted the colors too much.

This top measures 60 inches x 75 inches, and will make an excellent picnic blanket just in time for spring!

It was such a pretty yet windy day out side, that I was able to take some pretty fun and crazy "blowing in the air pictures." These ones almost remind me of stained glass.
