    Gosh, I am working on the Star Struck that I posted a pic of yesterday. I messed up the math when putting the border on.

    Now I will put a thin blue border around the neutral to get the stars to match up! I hope it looks ok.

    Well I am glad I messed it up! The blue looks good on it and stops the eye, framing it nicely. I have the star border on it and tomorrow will work on the final two.

    Question for you all.

    I was thinking of quilting it with neutral thread in the stars, big and small, and then in the neutral borders using a blue thread. Will this look ok?

    I agree the blue border makes it pop. The stars are lovely.
    In MHO your idea about the quilting is great.

    I thought there were no mistakes in quilting - only creative challenges and opportunities. I bet your additional border will be great.
