I'd probably include both sashing and borders, but it's really a personal
decision based on the size of the blocks and how big you want the finished
quilt to be. A friend had some old Dresden plate blocks made from feedsacks,
and she put them together with light yellow borders and sashing, and they
were just beautiful. In her case, she had only four blocks, and she made a
wallhanging from them. Regardless of what you decide, it sounds like a great
project - will you share pictures when you're finished?
