    Do I need another border?

    I am not sure if this quilt needs an outer border. What are your opinions?Name:  2ir closeup1.jpg

    Depending on how big you want the quilt to be...personally and this is just my preference of course. I would have put a 1 1/2" or 2" border of one of the colors in the quilt and then the wider outside border and then bind it with the inner border color but that is what I would do...and BTW I love love this quilt...Looks like a lot of work.....

    I love Hello Kitty! Your top is adorable! I might lay one of the brights from the quilt alongside the white border to audition it.

    I would try putting a wide border maybe 2" of the brighter pink color to see if it looks right, if not maybe a bright purple

    Short answer - yes. Longer answer - it looks unfinished to me the way it is. Just my opinion though. I love what you've done so far. Is that applique?

    I would put another border in a bright color. The white makes it very pale IMHO. Very nice quilt by the way. I do love the soft colors you have used.

    It's adorable! Maybe would've used the white as trim all around connecting the sashing and then the beige/tan border. But I think it's cute as is. Just depends on how big you want it.

    I agree with Btiny36. But it is best to audition to be able to find the perfect border. You have done a very lovely job with piecing this quilt.
