Scrapwork Top Finish

 The top is completed, and now measures 53x64" with the additions of three borders. Using the flying geese in my blocks box, added length to the skimpy amount of aqua stripe.

 This was such a satisfying project, using up almost a whole box of strips. I will now be more conscious of where leftovers get stored. Somehow I have a lot of dark prints and solids and never imagine or think 'dark'. Perhaps my subconscious will work on that for the future.
