Need Suggestions

I'm making these fussy-cut image blocks called “Summer Window” and I used batiks for the sashings. After laying them out (on brown carpeting), I see a challenge. Among other things, they are busy, multi-colored, and not symmetrical. How might a final project using these blocks be finished off? More sashings, different or the same, dark or light, etc.? I’m stumped, all ideas welcome!

I love your blocks--they probably need sashing around all of them-if you plan to make more-make them opposite of what you have made-that might give you more ideas too on how to put them all together

I'm not sure what you are trying to convey with the theme "summer window." I got lost in the title, so I am really no good at helping with your solution. maybe if I knew how these disparate blocks should fit together (theme wise), but right now I'm more stumped than you, dear Barbara.

I think sashings will help to marry the blocks. I would use light since it will mostly be against the darker outer edges of your blocks. You could use a medium solid also.

I would go with a plain less structured background and add these on top. Something a little more abstract and then add the block! But I like you block and know what you mean about they being different from each other.
