Those borders add the perfect frame - particularly love your crazy scrappy border - your colors are fabulous!

Thank you. I was a little concerned that the border was too bright, overshadowing the stars. I like it though. I am very visual and tactile; I figured I would make the stars and see how all the colors came together. I really learned a lot with this project. THANK YOU for doing this online course. I love it.

A question... any suggestions on quilting thread color? I was thinking blue on the black sections, but not sure about the stars.

The quilting thread color is varigated blue shading from light to dark.

Your quilting is beautiful, and I really love that variegated thread! It's fun that you showed a picture of the minkie on the back, too! What a wonderful quilt!
