    This is terrific! Perhaps a blue border to finish it off~~

    I've become a big fan of triple borders recently- mid size inner, narrow middle, wide outer border. If you want to bring out more blue from the quilt, I would go blue-white-blue. If you want more red, then blue-white-red. You could also do white-blue-red or white-red-blue, but I don't think either of those would pop as much as a narrow white between two darker values.

    Just my .02, adjust for inflation.

    Great job!

    I think a narrow border of the tan or light blue and a wider one and binding in the dark blue. I think I like yours the best of all I've seen so far!

    I believe UFOs are like scraps, ferns and dust bunnies. Once you get two, they send spores out into the air and more just happen anywhere the spores meet.

    Awesome quilt. I don't think it needs borders. Beautiful as is!

    I have the units finished and started the triangle blocks, but ran into a snag with the edges not being straight. Going to set Easy Street aside for a while and work on some UFO's. Like your color selections. Really shows off the geese.

    I love your quilt - I am thinking the blue would really set it off.

    Fabulous! Your color choices are great, good contrast can make or break a quilt like this. I haven't ever done one of Bonnie's mystery quilts. I always find them halfway thru and they don't seem like they would
    be quick and easy to play catch up. I sure do admire your beautiful version! I would do a blue border and keep it simple so as to not distract.

    Keep the borders simple so they don't distract from your beautiful blocks, Maybe a narrow dark blue or tan then the red as the wider border. It's really beautiful. Can't wait to see it with the borders on!
