Old Tobacco Road--Ready for Final Border

I've been working steadily on this quilt (Old Tobacco Road--A Bonnie Hunter quilt), and I'm ready for the outside border.

I auditioned two types: straight strings like I did for Jamestown Landing and string squares, which would produce a zigzag effect. I liked the zigzag, but in the end, I thought it was too busy. I have started stitching the borders. Here is one, placed at the edge of the top to check its effect:

Stay tuned! I'll show the finished quilt as soon as I get it done.
