January's UFO

I'm pretty excited--my #10 is Strings and Stars.
Every time I see this quilt top, 
I think about if I want to add borders or not and usually I say no to myself.
I'll measure it again and then make the final decision.
Oh gosh, a light bulb just went off in my head! 
I have a box of string strips already made up, 
what will that look like!

I kind of do have a plan.
I plan to do some walking foot quilting like I did on Taylor's quilt.
I have the thread picked out already.

I'm still thinking about the binding. 
I have some of the blue sashing fabric left but not sure if there is enough.
I don't remember how much of the cornerstone fabric I have.
That would make a great binding.
Should just go scrappy?

I also know that I'm going to use some of the older quilting panels
 that my friend gave me for the back.

I'm going to piece scraps of batting that will empty out another bin.

Looks like I'm about set with my big plan.

Red, blue, scrappy, or black would all work for the binding. LOVE this quilt!!!

What serendipity -- to remember that you have a good portion of the borders already made! (And even better, you remembered BEFORE you created other borders.)
