    need ideas for borders to a feathered star top

    I just finished this Judy Neimeyer feathered star. I took the pix with it on our queen size bed. I want to add 12 to 18 inches on a side to make it fit. The pattern was for a wall hanging 60" square. I have leftover fabrics in all the colors.

    Making it was an experience with a new and different PP technique of "floating points". There were two 8 hour classes 2 weeks apart and then I finished it at home after going on holiday.

    I don't want to take away from the busy center, so I really need ideas

    That is absolutely stunning!
    My first thought for a border would be a narrow, tall delectable mountains border, with the neutral towards the center of the quilt and an array of the other colors at the edges.

    i say add a blue wavy border to the outside then maybe some diamonds then another solid border in burgsndy. maybe. even some flying geese. just some thoughts.
    when life gets you down go and talk with a little kid. They will help you work out even the worst problems with their simple logic.
