Border is attached–finally

After three failed attempts, the brown stars finally have a border.  What a relief!  The answer seems so simple when you already know it.

I’m thinking I will use a dark binding like the bias strip you can barely see on the left edge.

Now on to sandwiching.

    well done! I like to use candy cane binding on scrappy quilt, have you ever done that? It is a great way to help use up left over strips from the project too.
    Thanks for stopping by my blog..I’d forgotten about the time I restitched the same mistake back in 🙂 What do people do for fun if they don’t make quilts???

    Gorgeous top and the simple piano border helps to frame your stars and still give it interest. Your applique idea was a good one but in the end it just didn’t go with the center stars and how wise of your to see that. A lot of work ripping out but am glad that you are happy with this final look.

    Love your blue/yellow stars that you are working on ….. those colours are right up my alley.
