Jan Fan Swap Top

Sorry for the long delay.  Password issues.

I participated in a swap at in January and have made the top up.  Still without borders, but hopefully I can figure out what I want to do with it in the next week or so. I plan to do some unusual, for me, quilting in those white spaces.  Not sure if it will be McTavishing or other fillers yet.  It will be awhile before I can even pin the quilt, but I'll have to set up a time at my local quilt shop, I think.  This is a full sized quilt and the borders will just give a little overhang. I really didn't expect it to be so big given that the blocks are 8.5 inches, but there were a LOT of participants, so this worked quite well.

For the border, my first thought is a narrow inner border and a piano outer border similar to this quilt (cudos to Little Pieces of My Life blog).   I'm almost tempted simply to make a few more blocks (I have 4 leftover) and abandon a border in favor of a solid binding to finish it off.  Decisions, decisions.
