Just to make things difficult for myself, I decided to extend the border up the sides. I remembered reading about 'vertical stranding', so I looked it up. It's a technique developed by Lorilee Beltman. The details are not given on free websites because, understandably, Lorilee would like you to learn it from her directly. So I'm just doing my own thing, using separate threads for each stitch of the side border. I suspect mine will not be as neat as the real deal, but it works better than using the same yarn as for the motifs.
