Two Finishes...Maybe

I finished the center of the Island Chain a week ago...I've had the border fabric since the beginning but it needed something else...
I found the gray stripe yesterday. I think it works. This was a very challenging quilt to make, but I didn't have to use my seam ripper at all. Amazing.
My second finish is the Charm Pack Cherry Quilt pattern by the Fat Quarter Shop. This is a fun easy quilt to make.

And I love the background fabric...Super Hero fabric.

But I feel like it needs something more...not sure what but more. How would it look if I added 3-5 narrow borders in the solid colors?

Channeling Sesame Street

One of these things is not like the others,
One of these things just doesn’t belong,
Can you tell which thing is not like the other
By the time I finish my song?
The third block was the charm, the first block I cut wrong after piecing the strips - this was the second attempt, it was one of those days.

Last Saturday was a fun sewing day with Stephanie and Nancy. While they cut and sewed I loaded a quilt on the frame. I finished it Sunday and added the binding yesterday.
