Since the last border is all bias cut fabric I am thinking about adding one more border using what fabric I have left cut on the straight of grain in random cut rectangular blocks. I pinned up some pieces to audition them. The more I think about this the more I feel that I need to add this last border.

Patty A's progress
I spent a lot of time thinking about what fabrics I wanted to use in fourth pieced border. I felt I needed to repeat the gold fabric, but I thought the natural linen would be to blah. I just purchased a yard of the fabric with the rust circles and I thought the addition of another shape would work. I went back and forth in my head with using the navy with the gold instead, but I thought that would be too safe and too close to the border in the tea towel. So I went for it and here is the result. I decided to make some made fabric from the scraps and I used the made fabric as corner blocks. The quilt measures 71” x 78”.
