Q&A with KrissBJoyful

Siodach asked:
I think I'd go with an initial border about 1.5 - 2 inches of the pale blue background fabric, to make the edge blocks 'float' in the middle. Then a second border in the dark blue fabric, leaving the red as an accent colour. I think if I had a solid fabric to match the dark blue colour, I'd use that for the border instead of the blue with white stars, and then the one with white stars for the binding..... :-)
KrissBJoyful answered:
Yes I went with your suggestion for 2" pale blue background. The blocks do float & it looks fantastic! Thank you for the suggestion.
