Children of the Sea: Begins with Borders

Yesterday I started adding the borders to the Children of the Sea Panel.  The first border is a folded pink batik border, which I'd intended to fold out and onto the second border.  I didn't foresee the trouble this would cause with the mitered corners of the second border, so instead the border folds in on the panel.   

The next border is 8.5" because I'm going be adding  biased scallops on to it.  The colors will be pulled from two of the colors in the killer whales, a light periwinkle blue, and a darker rich almost navy blue.  Once those are complete we'll take a good long look and see what it wants next.

Yep. I can totally see why you chose pink! Great job Liz! I can't wait to see the finished quilt!

Looks great. I will steal the concept to increase the size of a lighthouse panel I bought. I didn't know what to do and this is great.

That pink just sets off the panel and makes it sing. You have a great eye for colour. The fusions border ties in very nicely as well.

Looking forward to seeing where this goes from here.
