Still beading

I continue to work on the beaded crazy quilt. The border has come together very nicely. I based the design on an antique crazy quilt. Since I am not a precise piecer I used ultrasuede to make the dark scallops and fused them down. I have about half of the border beaded with flowers and I have only a few spots that may need a few more beads on the block. I am stumped on how to bead the orange triangles in the border. The need some beading but I haven't liked anything I have tried. Any suggestions?

I would just outline the edges between the triangles and the scallop with a nice bugle-seed-bugle time line of beads....
The border works great!

Beautiful work. Love the way you incorporated your initials too :)

This is a lovely piece. I think if it were mine I would be tempted to add a largest bead on each of the points of the triangle.

This is absolutely lovely and actually looks perfect just the way it is....but....when you asked for suggestions for the border I immediately saw a small spiral beaded in each empty triangle.

What a wonderful quilt. I like Crazypatchwork and stitching.
