Post-Christmas quilting

I'm on my own today, so I've been taking full advantage of the opportunity to spend some quality time with my sewing machine.  Here's what I've been working on yesterday and today.


Another diamond star, this time set on point and turned into a square quilt, rather than a hexagon.  I had planned a second round (square, that is) of diamond chain, after a 2" spacer of the background fabric, but now I'm wondering if I should simply complete the quilt with a 4" plain border and leave the main hexagon as the focal point without another border around it.  I'll have to ponder this, while I'm driving this weekend.  Opinions welcome.

  4. It is stunning as it is and draws your eye right in. A plain border seems just right!
