Border quilting conundrum

In my urge to get this quilt finished I was rather careless about the border quilting and just used the thickness of an ordinary school ruler to measure the lines not even bothering to measure the spacing so I had a narrow strip at each side of the triangles. I slept on it (not on the quilt, on the problem) and when I got up this morning drew more lines in between and quilted those. It looks better now and I'm happy. The point of this quilt is the piecing not the quilting. The centre blocks are just quilted in the ditch though this does make a pretty pattern on the reverse.
