Slow progress on my UFO

The 48 sashing pieces are finally all finished and squared, to be attached to the finished blocks. I'm still debating if I should just use the fabric I used for the unpieced blocks as setting and corner triangles or maybe choose a lighter pink that doesn't conflict with the star tips of the sashing. Once that's decided, I'll add a narrow dark purple/pink border and then a wider border of fabric that coordinates with the unpieced blocks. But for now back to sewing at least some sashing strips onto blocks, so I can get all of this off of my bed.

I absolutely LOVE your sashing on this quilt. It looks wonderful.

Those sashing stars just glow! Beautiful. I'd like to see it with both fabrics in there to see which one I like. I'm thinking I'd like the little floral print, but it may be that the pink would be better. LOL! Magenta in a lighter tone.
