I have stayed focused on my goal of getting the Rainbow Neighbourhood quilt top sewn together this week, and I am almost there!
I am liking the dark blue frames around each block,
combined with the sky blue cornerstones!
The pattern is written with a final 2.5 inch contrasting outer border, and I have been thinking and thinking about that. I could finish the quilt as is, above. I could choose a contrasting border, maybe the same light blue as the cornerstones? I would need to shop for that. Or, I could use the same dark blue as the sashing strips which I have plenty of.
That's actually what I decided to do, and have the two side borders sewn on,
and like it! I'll update this post with a new photo
when the top and bottom borders are on.
And Saturday afternoon - here it is with outer borders on! Yay!

My only frustration with the quilt top at this point is that the dark blue with stars really wants to fray! I need to hurry up and get the layers basted and quilting going, so I can get all the raw edges enclosed!
Ending with a favorite house - the green one - since, otherwise, I haven't sewn with any green this week at all.
That sky fabric is a favorite, too - I had enough of that to use it in two blocks.
