Crazy Big Block II

Here is my quilt after completion of step 2. This is my stack of 9 crazy big blocks waiting to be sewn together. I have decided that I want to put sashing between the blocks, and also that I need to choose a border, so I think that I will take an undeserved break (as I haven't really done anything much yet) and go to JoAnn's. I may check first and see if a cut of rose print fabric with a black background that I have had for many years (probably at least 17 or 18) would do, or if it would clash big time. I got these fat quarters at Conncecting Threads, and thought about checking there, but I don't want to wait that long.
I just went and got the fabric that I was speaking of, and I can't quite make up my mind. I guess I'll think on it, and if anyone has an opinion, I would like to hear it.

Hmmm I'm thinking no! The pink roses are a teeny bit too purple for me with the rest of it. Hey don't you want an excuse to buy more fabric??

It doesn't do it for me. With such a modern design perhaps you need a more modern, less obtrusive sort of fabric for the sashing?

From the picture, it doesn't look like the pink on the border plays well with the other pink.

Exactly how does that block work. I have always wanted to try one but never really understood exactly what size block to start with.
