two more seams

I am almost finished with the center...just two more long seams which require more time than I have presently to pin and stitch Maybe tonight? more likely next week. And then I am considering the borders and heaven help me I am already planning another in my head using brights so I can use my Spoonflower panels! Without Linda Franz' Inklingo, I would not have been able to do this pattern. Printing directly on the fabric with the seam lines made the stitching effortless and accurate. As for the fabric, it was collected swapped received as gifts and purchased over the last several years. I am a fabric collector! My stash is legion!

The votes were unanimous for the lighter colored center when I auditioned it from the computer. However it looks kind of drab in real life so I am tempted to choose another, The picture has three pieces cut from the brighter fabric and one from the drab one. can you guess which one I like? it is on the bottom left. My designer dh says, "It draws the eye to the center."
I think if I add some color to the border it will work well.
