I added the narrow tan border around these stars with brown sashing, sure I would want it there before adding anything else to the edges of this quilt. It seems to set off and separate the center from whatever's going to happen around the edge.
For me, it's not really good enough to lay out fabrics like this -- fat quarters folded to look like I think I may want them -- when in the end I would probably use shorter pieces of fabric. But I can't make myself cut up yardage or even a fat quarter when I know I may not use it or may want a different size in the end. I have enough scraps already.
Next I added a scrappy light border alongside the strips of colors.
This morning I took away the light scraps and tried a brown border beside the colors (imagining shorter strips of color).
Hmm. Is this is the kind of quilt I think could go either way -- light border or brown border? After living with the other options for a few days each, maybe brown is best.
One Monthly Goal, I really do need to decide in the next few days.) But I think I'm closer to a decision.
