Hopscotch - Flimsy?

After printing out Clue #5 for Frost 25, I headed downstairs to layout the blocks. However, my Hopscotch center was still taking up the floor space with the first inner border pinned from the other day. SO, NATURALLY, rather than setting it aside, I figured that I'd take care of the inner border.

The inner border finished lead me to some thinking of the outer pieced border suggested by Bonnie's pattern.....

A couple of hours of piecing after digging in the 2.5" scrap strip bin....

70" x 85" are the measurements as is.....I'm not sure if I'm calling this at flimsy stage though. I wonder if I have enough of the copper fabric left over for a final outer border....

However, time for me to close up shop today. Cassie has a softball tournament tonight and tomorrow, so it's time to start thinking about getting ready for that.

Hindsight after my border sewing push for Hopscotch in order to clear up the floor:
I could have used my design wall to layout the Frost 25 blocks! ;0)

I like it as is. I wouldn't put the outer boarder on it unless you want it for the size. I love it by the way.

LOVE LOVE LOVE that scrappy border. Hope you have enough for some kind of outer border though or loading it onto the frame will be a bit tricky. What is your next leader and enders?
