My daughter helped me pick out these fabrics - the first one she picked was the border.
I'm not crazy about the green sashing, but I love the stripes, even though I wanted them to be vertical and they came out horizontal. (I know - I could rotate the whole quilt 90 degrees, but I like the bigger blocks best this way.)
I was pretty happy that it was my first quilt and there's only one really visible "floater." The yellow in the striped fabric looks like a stalk of wheat, so I think I'll try a stitch to mimic that when I quilt it.
