Brown of Black sashing

This is another project started many years ago and not finished because I didn't have sashing and backing. These are mini squares made into 9-patches. I think they were 1.25 inch squares. Then framed . I have 25 of these made up. 

Side by side or sashed. Then black or brown sashing???

Don't remember what I thought I was going to do with them. It would make a good sized couch quilt with the number of blocks I have completed. I kinda like the added effect of the larger star when stitched side by side. Have to think this through a little. My husband likes sashed blocks. Me not so much. 

To me this looks more like a period quilt my Grandmother would have made. /more traditional in appearance. 

Need to water flower beds today. Haven't had much rain as of the last week. Some of the perennials were wilted yesterday. Chris

Go with your instinct and put them edge to edge. I like it that way too.
