I decided to use the blue fabric with stars that I bought recently, to use as sashing around the embroidered blocks of "Long Time Ago in Bethlehem". I couldn't find any pale colours with small stars, but I did get a buttery yellow with small polka dots.
After looking at the completed top, I decided to finish it without the remaining borders in the original design. I'll be using the same blue for the binding, so I machine basted a small folded strip on each edge to provide a small accent.
