Design Wall Monday - Houses

To sash, or not to sash......that is my question


This weekend I decided to attack my scrap boxes and used my favorite house tutorial to make about 50 houses.  Once the pieces are cut out, sewing the house together goes quite fast.
 
I've laid them out randomly on the "design floor" and I can't decide if I should add sashing or just sew them together.  Any thoughts?
 
I guess I'll just keep on building more houses until I can decide how to finish them.
 
Linking today to Design Wall Monday.

  1. My vote would be yes to sashing. The houses are very cute, but I think a little separation would be good.

  3. I like them just like this - crowded together in a cheerful riot of color. They are awesome! I've been "collecting" house block images on Pinterest... haven't started such a quilt yet but projects like this inspire me. Yours are darling.

  4. OMG adorable. This is not going to help any - as I see it will make the votes even - but in a colourful bunch, as is, would be my vote!

  10. I like them without sashing. Have you tried staggering them somehow? Maybe make some that are narrower and throw them in periodically to mix things up a bit? Just a thought...

  11. I know this sounds weird, but I dreamed last night that you made little tree blocks... or something like that. You know how dreams are. Stop me now!

  13. Gorgeous! I like this scrappy little house quilt to be. Sashing or not sashing? My first thought was no sashing...But with a closer look, I would be concern with that 1/4 inch that still need to be taken, the houses might get too small to be sewn together. Not sure on that one.
    (Usually, I prefer the modern look without sashing)
    Lovely!

  14. Either the way they are (adorable) or a very thin sashing just to give the little chimneys room to blow smoke from.
