    Thanks everyone so much!~~!! I think I will have a great surprise for this quilt in the end so keep tuned! I am thinking of doing something really unique and unusual with this quilt. You know when I added the 3rd border on, I then squared the bottom up really nice (meaning I cut off the extra string blocks and the navy trim that could've been left on to make up for adding the 4th border w/o having the same trouble as the 3rd border if that makes sense) so that it would be all ready when I added the last set of string blocks.

    I think I will repeat the same happy mistake again and do something really unusual in each of the 4 corners! I am thinking a Greek Key design in it with navy strips or who knows what I will come up with!

    These 4 corners are now kind of 'striking' being offset!! I'm kind of liking this!!

    Thanks, Linda! Your idea is great except I can't unsew since borders were cut off and squared up before I added row 3 with the frame on. Yikes! Oh, I see what you mean about adding horizontal and vertical strips to match the navy! Great idea. I may do that by appliqueing it all on. Btw, I am using this beautiful navy fabric on the WRONG side! I love both sides of it, but I love the way the print comes thru to the backside!

    Do you ever have a fabric where you love the backside better?

    Linda, I just reread your post again and I really think the INSIDE EDGES WILL HAVE TO BE DONE too because the string block starts BELOW the trimwork and not EVEN with it....duh....that's the part that looks so funny! It doesn't start at the edge like it should.

    I am wondering if the end of the string blocks should have a stopping point separating the corner block from them? Shouldn't there be a divider there? In other words, the corner block will then be continually wrapped with trim around it! From a visual standpoint, will that look right?

    Linda, I will get the postal fee off to you in the mail since you are getting ready to send to me! What in the world has the QS done this time??? Wonderful surprises, I'm sure!! Thanks again for all your wonderful help!! Quilters are the BEST in the world!!

    Well, keep tuned to see how I work around this error. I might do something dramatic for these corners now to get them to stand out! The dark yellow compliments the 'cheddar yellow' in the quilt since that color seems to be dominating the quilt so far. I've tried other colors in the corners, but the cheddar yelllow is screaming for something similar! lol.lol.
