    What a lovely quilt! Do you have the fabrics you used for the appliques? If so, you could use them to make a pieced border -- it's really quite easy & you'd be pulling in the colors from everywhere! Good luck & enjoy it!

    I'd do a scrappy BINDING with left over fab from blocks. That will jazz it up

    I'll go through my scraps and see if I still have any of the fabric from the appliques. That may look good. Thanks!

    I wouldn't put a border around it, it's beautiful the way how it is.

    Fabulous. Leave it alone, it's the best.

    It is wonderful. I would add a border but that's just me.

    It doesn't need a border unless you need to make it bigger. It's beautiful!

    It looks like you have your answer, but I'll throw in my two cents worth anyway! I really like the idea of a scrappy border with the various colors used in the lighthouses, etc. I'd probably bind it in the darker blue if I did that. I hope you'll share another picture when you're finished - this is a really cute quilt.
