    That is exactly what I did with mine a while back. I was going to suggest this, but I didn't... You must have read my mind.

    Heres a pic of mine without sashings.

    I think it looks nice. The light inner boarder frames all the different fabrics that you used. You did good. Now with the boarder it really pops.

    Definitely NOT ugly. It's a really nice scrappy strippy quilt. Good job.

    Bind it in your yellow & voila! the finishing touch! I think it is turning out to be beautiful - like a beautiful butterfly from a caterpillar.
