does this log cabin need a border
Welcome to the Quilting Board!
i like at least one border on all quilts
I probably would add a border. Maybe a zinger (1/2 inch to 1 inch) of the red, and the darker blue on the outside? Or do you have a piece that sort of pulls all of the colors together; a print?
Yes...most quilts need at least a small border.....jmho :-D
Many antique log cabins didn't have a border.
Depending on your size you might want to add just a narrow border -- the width of one of the strips -- in the red color and then bind it in blue.
Or a piano-key border using the colors inthe quilt, after a narrow border looks really nice on these quilts, too.

I think a border, possibly red, would make the block all come together and show off them off better. It is looking good, though. Keep up the good work.
I'd go with a red border, or at least a wide binding in the red.
IMHO All quilts need borders... but that's just me.
