    I like a border on a quilt. To me, it makes it more complete. Hurricane Hannah is precious.

    yes I do too. I LOVE, LOVE a border on my quilts. Just feels more complete to me. That's my thinking anyway... LOL :)

    My opinion is, is the quilt big enough as it is? I like borders myself, but there is no quilt police so you can do whatever you want.

    I usually like borders, too, but this one would look fine without one!

    I like borders on my quilts. They seem to frame them. It's up to you though. Your DGD is darling.
