I'm making a table top for a boat table. (Weird shape.) In the middle there is a mariner's compass. The material around the compass is a little too narrow to be inserted into the rest of the quilt. I can always add a thin border around with the same material - and then quilt just off the seam to accentuate the border - or not. Or I can make a border of a different material which would really accentuate the center compass. My inclination is to use the same material but I've never done that before. Does that work out OK? And if I do, should I quilt off the seam?
Picture also shows some outside border materials I'm considering. Any thoughts on those?
PS: There will be star appliques on the 'night' section before I'm done - if you can imagine it.
