    I think a rust or burgundy border the size of the white/off-white strips would make a nice finish with a black binding. I think an all-over meander in the colored blocks and a pattern in the white/off-white strips would be nice. Thanks for showing us your progressing and please post your final work for us to see. Thanks for sharing.

    Really like the blocks. I would audition different colors before I pick a border. So many colors to pick from.

    What a yummy quilt. Eye candy quilts are my favorite.

    I am curious to know what the yardage is needed, and how big the mystery quilt ened up....I have yet to find a pattern for it and I just hate to figure it out myself.... would you still have the info

    Wonderful. I love the colors and my dad was from Arkansas to that would be a double meaning for me.

    Is it white or cream fabric that produces the diamond effect? Can't tell. Think maybe a border in that colour would make the quilt pop. However, for a warmer effect, one of the yellows or orange in the quilt.
