I don't know what to do with the border. I'm thinking a thin inner border, then maybe 4-patch blocks with black and the ombre fabric, but I can't get the picture in my brain. Maybe a simple border of the ombre fabric, then a wider black fabric. I also thought it might be interesting to have a scalloped border. Here are some mock-ups. What do you think?
