Early this morning, I started pin basting the scrappy log cabin quilt I began early this year.  It's a large throw size, about 60  x 70".  I don't love it.  Honestly, when I look at it now, I don't even like it.

I think it needs sashing (a thin light border between each block), but I don't want to have to take it apart.  I'll also have to re-work the back if the sashing made it too much bigger.  So, do I get out the seam ripper or keep pinning?  If I finish it as is, I know we'll use it, and I love all the fabrics, but I'll always wonder what it would have looked like if I had used sashing.  It just seems too busy to me as is.

Maybe I'll debate further as I attempt to bake this chocolate peanut butter cake for a Christmas party tonight.  Does licking chocolate covered mixer beaters bring about clarity and discernment of thought?

I love all the fabrics you used. If every time you look at it you will wonder about the sashing, then I guess it's best if you take it apart. It does look like it could use some sashing to help calm it down a bit.
