    Okay, I have all the strips sewn together, and this is how it looks now. I am very pleased. I am going to let it sit a while before I do anything else, but I would be open to suggestions for borders....

    Thanks for all the encouragement so many of you gave me over the last four days.

    It is beautiful! I think I would do a white border maybe 2" and then a turquoise border of 2" or maybe 3". I do love borders...

    Absolutely gorgeous, love the way you did the colors. I vote for a darker turquoise border at least 1-1/2" - white border 2-1/2" and then a 3-1/2" border of the turquoise you used in the center. Of course, you can use whatever you like and the sizes you want. Jist gave my opinion.

    Beautiful! I agree with some of the others who suggested a darker inner border, lighter outer border. Then I'd add a darker binding.

    Your quilt is just beautiful. My favorite color. The way you put the light blocks next to the darker blue ones just makes them pop. Great job!
