Crossing the Border

I made it all the way around the outside of the border, but now I'm not sure what I want to do in the plain brown area.  It seems to call for a little area left unquilted, somewhere to rest the eyes.

But I don't like how the plain area seems to wrinkle and puff up so I will probably do the same kind of feathers on the inside of the spine.

I really found the echoing difficult to do on this outside border.  I'm using Coats 50 wt cotton on the top and bobbin.  I really liked using the silk on the blue portion of this piece.  It seems a little more forgiving.  I'll definitely use silk again.
