Feathered Star - Chapter 5

Here is what my Feathered star looks like prior to adding the background and borders.

I have selected the background for behind the star.
And then I started auditioning fabrics for the border.

With the feather tips being light and medium I struggled using the fabric I had.  Most of them ranged from light to medium.  Fortunately Quilts and Sew Forth was running their batiks on sale so what is a girl to do???  I picked up some more Merlot which was used in the center and then a couple more purples that are darker.  I think they will blend together but still be dark enough for the border.

What do you think?
Tomorrow I need to spend the day getting the border sections cut so I can start sewing!!!
