    I would add another border, but unless you know that the baby is a girl I would choose a green border over the pink.

    If you wanted to make it even larger yet, you can attach more batting with a zig-zag stitch,
    then add the borders to size you want.

    btw - It's VERY PRETTY!!

    Beautiful quilt........I agree, you could add a border using QAYG method.

    I like the idea of a keyboard boarder like RST suggested. If you can't find another charm pack any color would be nice that goes with the colored boarder already used would work.

    I agree -- I like my baby quilts at least 36" square and I prefer 36x45 or 45" square.

    Adding another border will work. What I would do is baste strips of batting around the outside of the existing batting, just butting the edges together and doing a big loopy whip stitch to hold the strips to the batting -- you want to keep the batting flat when you do this. Add enough batting to get to the size you want plus about 2" extra. If your backing is not wide enough, add a border on the back as well as on the top -- just make sure the seams on the back do not match the seams on the front (it gets too bulky if they match).

    Beautiful jazzy baby quilt. A border would be great, just do a lot of pinning and sew slowly with frequent checking to keep the rest of the quilt from being caught in the seam.

    I think you can do this, and yes, I would do a border of the backing fabric. Cheers, K
