Musical Angels Quilt - Border On!

It has been quite the process, but I finally have the border attached and the corners mitre'd on the musical angels quilt. I think having three borders of varying widths is a nice design feature to the quilt. Originally, I was thinking of starting narrow and gradually wider towards the binding but after auditioning the fabric, I decided I liked having the narrow border in the middle of the two wider ones.
Here are a couple of pictures of the quilt with the borders on. The first one is a close-up of the upper left corner and the second is of the whole quilt.

My next step is to build my quilt sandwich in preparation of machine quilting it. This process will take a little longer since I'm not quite sure what quilting design(s) I will use. I have a few ideas and will need to audition them before I make a final decision. Also, before I quilt on the quilt I will be doing some practice exercises with my new toy, which I would do anyways to select thread colors and designs.
