The original pattern doesn’t have any borders.
Here I add the first background border to float the design and then where the purple is – that will be the taupey tan I used to frame the large blocks and will mimic the framing shape of the inner blocks. The a final blue/gold print border fabric. The perfect finish to it.
Now I just have to check the length of the border pieces in EQ and see if I have enough of my background and taupe fabric to do it. Finally to some cutting and sewing.
