Default Need Suggestions on Border

I am doing the final border on a quilt I am donating to the VFW for a raffle. I have the corners of an eagle head done, but I am stumped on what to do between them!! Any ideas - pictures would be great - from you would really help me!!

You have an awesome quilt design and there is so much going on I would use solid navy between your strip sets in the border to draw a continuous line to each Eagle head. It is a gorgeous quilt and will raise a good amount for a great cause.

If it were mine... I'd leave the red-white-blue strips by the eagle heads.
Then put navy blue between. Gives your eye a chance to rest and see all the beautiful work that's there.

What a noble project!
