Starting over

...with the borders. We had good weather this weekend, so while the kids were outside playing I took advantage of the good light and sat outside and ripped and ripped and ripped. I am now back to this, but of course with the blocks sewn together. So now I'm seeking advice. I think the words will be on the back of the quilt, or the very outermost border, depending on size constraints. So, I'm leaning towards a narrow inner border and then a wide outer border. Thoughts?

I put my words on the back because they 'fought' with the dynamic of the front ... I totally understand your dilemma.

What about turing your words into a banded inner border (skinny stop strip, the word blocks, and another skinny stop strip)? Lots of piecing and color options for this approach!

Then you can play with the outer border (solid or scrappy monotone or some other non-traditional variation).

You'll know when you audition your "right" one. Good luck!
