Sashing or no sashing?

I've had these strips sewn together for several years,
but I've stalled on the sashing.
At first I was going to make this a more traditional Chinese coins quilt
but now after playing with strings with all of you,
I'm wondering whta you think of a less orderly approach.
Here they are laid out side by side without the coins matching up.
I'm also thinking of inserting pinwheels or some other feature randomly.

I like your ideas. Go with your gut. Nothing wrong with less orderly!

I like it the way it is-

I'm interested to see what you will come up with. I like randomness way better than order.

I like randomness better than order, too.
May I show a picture of a scrap squares quilt I made?
Have a wonderful day!

I vote for no sashing -- and random is usually good.

Play and just go for it . . .

I really like it the way it is, without the coins matching up. I think the only reason to add sashing would be if you needed it bigger. I'd be tempted to add borders instead. Hugs, Finn

I like the way you have a random layout and a few pinwheels would be icing on the cake. No sashing.
