WIP Work In Progress: Scrappy Heart Lap Quilt

I finally put together 20 of my extra heart blocks into this lap-size quilt top.  There is a lot of white in the background so I opted for a smaller 1-inch sashing with color cornerstones.  

I couldn't decide whether or not to add borders.  What color inner border should I add?  What about the outer border? Then I thought about adding a pieced border.  Maybe pinwheels or 4-patch units?  I auditioned a few units with and without a white inner border, and nothing seemed to be right.  I finally decided to use the leftover 2.5" strips I used to make the blocks to create a scrappy border ... and voila!  Now onto quilting and binding.  Hopefully, I can finish before Valentine's Day.

And, today I finished December's Block 4 Holiday Cheer in A Very Coriander Christmas BOM subscription.  I still need to complete Block 5 for January which I should get done over the weekend.  I'll then be ready for February's Block 6.  We'll be halfway through so this continues to be a work-in-progress.  I really enjoy working on these blocks.
