Ehh! It was OK, but I thought the scale was off and I wasn't happy with the way it looked against the first border. Notice the way the strips are slanted? I did that on purpose. So I took another look at my blocks.
Hmm, let's try this. Flip the block and make the new border like an extension of the block. This is what I came up with.
I scaled the strips down from the original two inches to 1-1/2 inches. The red borders will finish at 3/4 inches, which is the size of the block borders and I will have to put together three more block for the corners.
I like it, lots!
