The chicken and egg fabric won in the end. I decided not to put the narrow black border first. It would just be a lint catcher on a tablecloth and the background of the border print separates nicely from the pieced center. Most of the border will be hanging over the table edge.
I received the fabric that I won in a giveaway and I think they go well with the Hunter Star blocks so I’ll be making four more blocks. They are just a little more green/turquoise so they will help balance out the 4 that are already in that shade. Most of the others are more blue/turquoise.
This photo is for the noreply person who inquired about the brand name on this fabric. I purchased it on sale in August 2012 so it is probably not available any more. Most of my fabrics age on the shelf for awhile before I use them. This one will age a little longer since I didn’t choose it for the border.
