Need Your Opinion on the Sashing

Ok, so all 24 blocks are done and sashed vertically into rows. Now I need some help deciding on the horizontal sashing. I talked to my boss about how light white sashing would make the quilt but she really wanted white, so that's not the question.


Here is the quilt on the design wall with white horizontal and vertical sashing.
Click to enlarge, this quilt is too light to be appreciated from far away.


Now here is the quilt with gnome cornerstones in the horizontal white sashing. The gnomes are her favorite of all the fabrics and I think it gives the quilt some zazz. The binding will also add zazz, as I plan to use the dots you see here.

So what do you think? To gnome or not to gnome?

Oh yes, gnomes for sure! I also think the stripes would be great binding... cut on the bias so you get that barber pole effect!
