As I was piecing the rows together I was contemplating the borders. One look I've always liked is a 4-patch pieced border. I first saw this on a baby quilt years ago but for some reason I've never tried it. I suspect it's because most of my quilts have been large bed quilts so by the time I've gotten to the borders more piecing didn't seem to be the right mix.
I finished sewing the rows together. They went together easily with a white-on-white sashing with different size circles. Really cute! Love that fish!
Next I started playing with some of the left over pieces to make 4-patches.

Finally came up with this combo. Seeing this picture which shows the striped wall paper in my sewing room makes me realize I need to paint that design wall =:o)
