Stars from flowers

This photo proves all ideas are not good ones!  The center stars are the left over pieces from the Flower quilt.  I thought it would be a neat idea to make borders out of the random parts, sort of floating them on the white.  NOT!  It's just a hot mess in my opinion.
 The border has been  removed, and I'm thinking of starting with a checkered border, Then some more white, and finishing it off with binding from prints.

 I just wanted to clean off my desk from the last project by making something of the leftovers, but now I've wasted a few hours with this mess.  Lesson learned:  when using multiple bright colored prints, less is more!  I hope my mood and my quilt have calmed down a bit in my next post.  Please stand by!

Don't be so hard on yourself. I can see how you are disappointed witht the border, but I LOVE those stars!! Fun and colorful. Maybe a checkered border. But white with a colorful binding would have my vote.
(what an impessive fabric stash behind the quilt too!! wow...)
