Jumbo Star Quilt Top

I became a little obsessed with this quilt top over the past two days and just finished piecing the star! I admit to being a total quilt dork, but I was so excited when everything matched up. I pieced all the white border triangles and squares as complete pieces requiring partial seams for each piece. I was almost giddy when everything was smooth and laid nice and flat. 

The current size is about 70". I'm now considering borders. I'm thinking of adding a skinny 1/2" solid border in the blue, yellow or a green I have that coordinates. Then I'd add an additional thick white border. I haven't done much else during my free time over the past two days. Now that the star is pieced together, I can let it sit for a bit while I consider the best choice for a border. I should probably go clean my house now...




Fabrics are mostly from the Citrine Palate from Notting Hill by Joel Dewberry. The oval print and blue and yellow solids are Art Gallery. The neutral is Kona Bone.
