Mystery Quilt - Final Corner and completion, and Link up for final quilts

With school finally out I've been able to finish up the mystery quilt and am finally getting brief directions written up for it.    The same patterns were used as in the third corner, the difference comes in your color placement for the flying geese.
The paper-pieced patterns can be found here flying geese strips - pattern.  And the pp'd pattern for the corner unit can be found here - corner unit.

For this corner, instead of the geese being one color and the corner triangles being the background fabric,  the fabrics are alternated to achieve the look of a chevron.    With the numbered example below, pieces 2, 3, and 4 would be done in the chevron fabric.   Pieces 1, 5, 6, and 7 would be from the background fabric.   Then repeat as needed to get the length border that you need for your quilt.

Once the corner has been pieced, then layout your corner sections and measure to figure out how big to cut the strips needed to fill in the sides of the border between the pieced sections.  2 strips that are 4.5" wide by width-of-fabric should be enough to finish the borders if the pieced sections are similar to mine.

I'd love to see your completed quilts or quilt tops, so please consider linking up here so others can see your beautiful work!

I would link up but mine isn't final still! Yours looks fabulous, though.

I really like your four different cornered border and plan to use the idea someday. Linking my finish without a border--sometimes I like to skip the border, and this was one.
