My Old Flame

I dug out my modern house blocks and started to think about putting another border on them.

I was so in love with this project and these blocks before that it is practically a crime that they have not been made into a quilt top.

How about some advise on setting the blocks here...

I like the fabric on the right and think it is a good allows the quilt to come together.  I think something is still missing though.  

Maybe a very thin dark 'frame' of maybe 1/2" black or almost black fabric around all the blocks first?  They sort of need something to frame them up.  

Ideas?  Help!  I'm crowd sourcing this one!

I'm so glad you're getting these out again. I remember liking them very much. I saw a quilt this weekend that had blocks of different flowers with pretty wide sashing in between. Each flower block had a very thin dark border on the left and bottom only. It looked like a drop shadow on each one. Very impressive. It looked like each one was a photo stuck to a bulletin board. Might be something to try. If I can find a photo, I'll send it to you.
