Moving It Forward Monday -- Another QOV Top Done!

I've been working on two QOV tops for the last month.  I completed one (you can see it here) but the second one, "Cosmic Valor", needed some additional thinking to get borders onto it with the fabric I had left.  The good news is that over the weekend, I was able to come up with a simple alternative to the patterned borders that worked with my fabric constraints.  I finished them up today so now it's a flimsy up on the Design Wall!

Pattern:  "Patriotic Cosmic Stars" from Love of Quilting May/June 2016

Now I've got to find backing fabric for this.  I'm loving the open spaces around the center and between the star points.  I could definitely see potential custom quilting designs for this.  However, I'd also love to get both quilts  done by Veteran's Day in November so I don't know if doing that (custom work or the quilting in general) is going to happen.

I've also got a lot of little Fall decorating projects I want to get done this month so we'll see how far I get with these.  For now though, feeling really good about "Moving It Forward" so linking up with everyone at Em Bailey's Em's Scrapbag blog and all the other design walls at Judy Laquidara's Patchwork Times.   Happy Fall, 'yall!

Cosmic Valor is very eye-catching and I love your border treatment, too!
