    This quilt is for my 6 year old grandson. He requested dragons. Should I add a border or just bind it? If border is needed what color would you suggest?

    I like borders as it gives an ending to the design. Any of the primary colors you have alreay used would look good.

    I would border it in black, or whatever the dark color is in the focus blocks and then bind it with a bright color :D:D:D

    I love this bright and cheerful quilt 8-)8-)8-)

    If you use a color that is in the quilt middle where it touches that color you will lose the design. So I suggest another color--maybe a green that is darker. Maybe even black? Nice quilt and bright--I love the vibrant colors.

    I would put a black border on it and use all the primary colors(a strip of each until you have enough) for the binding!!
