Even with doing the initial stitching of the pattern twice I was still plagued by fabric fraying so it took longer to complete. The next time I do this type of quilt and I do have another one planned with a sea turtle as my image, I will first use Misty Fuse on the back of my background fabric to stabilize it and that should prevent most of the fraying. I'm glad that this is only a wall hanging so it won't get a lot of wear or tear otherwise I really would have had to start all over again to make it more durable. So here is what it looks like at this point.
Next will come the borders. I'm looking at adding a small dark brown Stonehenge border about 1" in width. Then there will be about a 4" pieced border in about 3 or 4 different shades of medium to darker orange Stonehenge fabrics, and they will be pieced in a similar fashion to the background part.
