My outer star border is made up of 6" finished stars and in order to accommodate that size and fit them to the quilt center I might need to float the center blocks within the brown triangles. I am not sure what the actual size the border triangles should be so I will make them over-sized with the intention of trimming them to fit.
I really want to bring more of the blue fabric that I used to surround the stars in the center blocks to the outer edge of the quilt and I have been scrounging around trying to find enough. I have one large hunk that is approx 28" x full width but it won't be enough for the borders. I rescued what was left of the last 7" wide strip used for cutting the triangles and I dug through my strip bins and I found 1.5 full strips at 3.5" wide. Now I have to make it work.
