    I don't know. I'm thinking a bit more blue, BUT I'm sure whatever you decide will be awesome. That is a gorgeous quilt

    Your center block is amazing. I think you should do something to really set it off. Maybe just frame it in a nice blue.

    Elle - your compass is amazing. I (like everyone else) am anxious to see how you lay this out and what it'll look like. It's really summery. The blue remind me of the Greek isles :).

    I would maybe add a 1" blue, then white and then another 1" blue. You could do some really beautiful quilting in the white border in between the 2 blue 1" borders. Your compass is absolutely amazing.

    B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L!!!

    my 2 cents - I vote blue then a small white. I think a single white border looses the blue balance.

    It's gorgeous.

    I love the white Elle. Gosh the blocks are all so beautiful. I like CajinQuilter's suggestion, use a blue border around the center block. I like the color Mgshaw used in her quilt. I think the darker blue would look great and not detract in any way.

    OR do I edge each block in blue and then sew them together

    I would be grateful for your suggestions.

    Thanks to everyone for there help and suggestions, i will be putting on a blue border around the Compass block which I will put on point. the I plan to put white corners on it to make it a square and then a further blue border. I want to add white strips between my blocks and then finish it of with a blue and white border. if all goes well will add some applique to the middle corner blocks.

    However this is in a pile and is 5th in line LOL, but now I know what to do with it thanks to your help I feel happy with it.
