It's A Top...

After living with the sewn blocks pinned up on the wall for a couple of weeks, waiting for what to do about borders to come to me, my TTS is now a top...
I added a 1/2" inner border to bring the gold into the borders, break up the busyness of the two fabrics and eliminate the prospect of blo blending into the Next decision will be what colour thread to use for quilting...will have to live with the top for a while until it makes a decision on what it should be...
