    Need suggestions please

    I have completed the center portion of the wall quilt for my DGS but I wasn't able to locate the coordinating print fabric that the designer used for the border. I am thinking about using the darker blue for the final 5" border using cornerstones. But what to use as cornerstones? I thought about reducing the airplanes and appliquéing those but that would take away from the center part of the quilt IMHO. Or use a bit larger pinwheels. Or would just plain no print fabric be better? Or no cornerstones used at all? Suggestions would be so appreciated. Would love to get this done. Thanks.

    A darker blue border with pinwheels in the corners would be terrific!
    Be a blessing to others, as you may entertain angels unaware!

    I agree! Dark blue with pinwheels in the corners would be perfect.

    This sounds like a good idea to me!

    I agree. Dark blue border with pinwheels in the corner will look great.

    You could also grab one of the stars & put that in your border. But I agree that a pinwheel would work, too.

    Another vote for the blue with a pinwheel in each corner! Very very cute!
    If a woman's work is never done....why start?
