Simple Gifts

It was a simple gift to be able to work on this after the detailed little Pieces of Times blocks:

It's funny -- for years I didn't like blue and now I just love it. Not all shades, but this one, for sure. I'm pondering the border treatment. I want to keep the quilt calm (and get it done!), so this is one possibility:

But I have a lot of the sashing pieces which were cut (ahem) a bit short

and which I could turn into a pieced border:

Then the questions are: narrow coral stripe with the pieced border? Dark blue outside this border? Inner border? Of what?

Any suggestions?

Clever way to make that border - I had to study and figure (aka THINK!) to figure it out. Hope I can remember this tip next time I make that particular border.
