Stars For A New Millenium, Progress #4

I have made a little bit of progress on Stars.  The sashing between the squares is complete for the first row, except for the little joining squares which I won't do till I get the next row done.
The border has a good start.  That inner border is stitched with 3 strands of Splendor and takes forever!  But I think it is looking nice.  Be sure to compare to Jan's which has a much different look! 

I am not thrilled with the aqua for the outer border - I think it is too light.  So, rather than change anything now, I am thinking that I will add another rust border, or maybe an overdye, around to square off the piece so it will be even all the way around instead of having things sticking out!  I won't decide about that till I am finished though.

I am enjoying working on this project.  It is a lot of fun and full of surprises!

You're now officially further along than I am, and I'm not going to say how long I've been pretending to work on this project. Your colorway is working out beautifully. I think the additional outer border might be nice, but once you've got it all finished, the blue might be just right. It's such a complex piece, it's hard to make judgments at this point.

I believe this is the prettiest color combination I've seen!
