City sampler

Here are blocks 7, 8 and 9. I love the fabrics but wonder if they are a little too busy? Perhaps they'll look better with a plain sashing? I'm really enjoying making these little blocks, and am thinking that I might make another set in solids. What do you think?

I like your fabrics ... esp the owls x think it would be wonderful in solid colours x

Oooooo. LOVE the owls!
Plain white sashing has a way of calming and pulling everything together. Definitely my favorite standard when making scrappy quilts.

I love the fabrics you are using. They would be great in solids too though. Too many quilt blocks, too few hours in the day.

The blocks are looking great. That fabric is just so happy, it makes you smile. Sashing may be nice to let your eye focus on each block and fabric a bit more rather than them competing with each other side by side.

LOVE this fabric. If I were doing it I might include some solids in with the prints... but sashing them in a solid colour will definitely calm it all down anyway. The fabric choices are incredible, though! Love them :)
