    Thanks for the info hun! The river is behaving for the most part. Your hubs moved your trailer a bit further from the rising water, "just in case" Said he was too old to deal with middle of the night emergencies. LOL
    Take care of yourself. See you soon.

    Well, I got the border on. I will post it with my final decision when I get it quilted and bound. :) Thanks for everyone's advice.
    I have it sandwiched and am setting up my machine for FMQ now. Hopefully I don't totally botch it. It will be my second time FMQ.
    Wish me luck!

    Should I
    A. continue one more row all around ending in 1/2 square light diamonds all around.
    B. make a full row all around with scrappy dark HS triangles (shown in second pic).
    C. Border all around in a 9" strip of dark or light (maybe 4 1/2 of each?) fabric
    D. any other brilliant ideas?
    I would add three or four graduated widths borders in shades of blues. You will finish the quilt and it will be lovely. You will never find material to "match " your controlled scrappy look and new fabrics will just look like you ran out of fabric. I think you did an excellent job of creating this quilt from scratch.
