Fencerail Quilt Progress

I've sewn a little more on my fencerail quilt this week, adding borders and backing. I think I might actually finish this project! The size is smaller than a twin, but would be a good size to curl up with on the couch and read or watch movies.

When I bought my backing, I was thinking my borders would be narrow. After deciding on a wider orange border, my backing wasn't large enough. So I had to do some piecing. The brown stripe looks a little more slanted in this photo than it does in person.

I've done some stitching in the ditch to secure the quilt sandwich layers, but haven't decided on an actual pattern for the blocks and borders. This is going to be the tricky part for me. 

And while I've sworn off buying any new fabric (and use my stash instead), I couldn't resist this fat quarter bundle, called Fiona's Fancy by Riley Blake Designs:

Your fencerail quilt is stunning! You really have an eye for color and design. I am afraid I would go mad trying to make fabric choices, but I am being tempted more and more.
