    Border for log cabin quilt

    I put a 2" red border for this but wondered if i should put the 4" tan also. The binding will be a blue, probably dark.
    The first picture is the full quilt, the second with no additional border (brown is the floor), and the final picture is with the tan second border.

    Thanks for any advice!!

    It needs the tan border. Looks incomplete otherwise. (Imho)

    I like it with the tan border added as well.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    If it were mine (& wow... do I wish it was... LOL!), I think I'd put a medium-wide tan border on it. I think blue would make a perfect binding. In fact, if it were mine, I'd make the binding scrappy like the blocks. All this is IMHO. But this also is IMHO... this quilt is a beauty! Please post again after you finish it, OK?

    I was leaning towards the tan border This is one of my UFO's and finally decided to do something with it!! I am actually going to raffle it off with proceeds going to St. Jude's. I'm doing the Warrior Dash in May in Georgia and I'm not getting many donations with just asking. Figured I would sweeten the pot!

    Yes, I agree with others--the tan border finishes the quilt. Nice job. Thanks for sharing.
    God Bless,
