Default Friendship Star Swap

I just finished this top today. It was from a swap from several years ago. Trying to get some of these blocks to match up was a trick. LOL. I didn't have anywhere flat to get a better pic, so it looks a little wonky but its really not. Trying to decide what to do about a border. Any ideas?? I don't have any fabric that matches any of the stars, but it looks like it needs something. I thought about keeping my eye out for material done in red,orange, yellow and purple..thats the colors of the stars if it doesn't come thru right in the pic.
Thanks,
Tammy D

Very nice! You're right, a nice rainbow type of border will look great.

Pretty, maybe a double or triple border using a couple of the main colors. Maybe the interior border is 1 and 1/2 inches and the second color is 3 inches...just an idea.

that's pretty -- you could do whatever you want with borders -- it will just enhance it!
