Green or Purple?

I can’t decide on the sashing color for Jane.   The green would be the more traditional option but the purple makes the blocks pop.  I’m also going to do the tiny cornerstone squares in the sashing.  Those can be green, purple or red.  I’m so, so, so ready for this quilt to be D-O-N-E!!!  Please vote in the comments!

    Purple, for sure … for the exact reason you mentioned. It shows off all of your hard work. And who wants to be traditional, anyway??! : )

    Purple is my vote. From the sample you show and what I think I remember seeing, there are a lot of blocks withe light green background. The purple really makes them sing! Maybe the green would work as the corner stone. Beautiful quilt.

    I saw a Dear Jane at the OKC Winter Quilt show last weekend and the sashings were dark navy. The blocks just popped. Go with the purple. You amaze me…..already doing the sashings…wow! Can’t wait to see what is next.

    Hum, well, I guess I’m just too traditional ’cause I’m going with green. I do like the way the purple looks, the blocks surely stand out more with it as a background. But, the green looks so smooth and I’m not one for “super bold” in my quilts.

    my first reaction was green – love that shade of green and don’t really care for purple in general, but really, the blocks just pop off that purple and really shine. It’s gotta be purple I think!

    I think the purple makes the blocks pop while the green the blocks just blend. I am amazed how fast you are doing these block. Kudos to you.

    The blocks get lost in the green and don’t show the work that went into each block. I’d go with the purple.

    Thanks everyone! I think I’ll go with purple. I agree with Heather about the bold quilt thing… I don’t like too bold but with only 1/2″ of purple showing hopefully it won’t be too bold.

    Now to figure out how to quilt it…
