After all that.....

I'm using my aquas for a patchy border.  Yep, I chickened. At this point I'm valuing "done" over "intricate".
 In person, it looks more like this:
which I think will be very pretty.  it's lighter than Bonnie's turquoise print, and using various aquas gives it more interest than a single fabric.

The big print arrived today:
It's going on the backing and will be cheery and fun.  HOWEVER - for the border it just will not do!  See:
It grabs the quilt, yells "See ya!" and runs away with it.  Just tooooo loud.  My fabric colors are too pale for this print.

Love the turquoise. It really adds doesn't it. I don't think you've taken the easy way out, either! What a great quilt. Now you just have to quilt it!!!
