I decided I liked this fabric for the outer border and cut it and sewed it on. The right side is a little dark because I didn't turn on the light on that side of it last night. A hint when you are working with dotted fabrics: cut the longest edge of sashing strips on the lengthwise grain and it will look straighter. In this case it was 4.5" x 8.5" so I cut a strip 8.5" and sliced it into 4.5" sections. If I had cut a 4.5" strip on the crosswise grain you would have seen the dots running crooked across the sashing strips.
