    how to finish?

    hi!

    this just needs its borders quilted.

    i'm a bit stuck though. the borders are slightly asymmetrical.

    so...straight lines? straight lines with star clusters? stars? wavy lines?

    what would you do?

    Maybe a large XXX pattern?

    My vote is for wavy lines with stars, keeping in the patriotic theme of the colors. Nice work!

    I agree with Pinkiris ... keep the patriotic theme going. That leave you many options depending on your skill and comfort level.

    Stars, flags, ocean waves, mountains?, Statue of Liberty, Liberty Bell ...

    Have fun quilting! If it isn't fun, you will miss a lot.
