    Cottage Romance - Borders or no borders?

    Sorry for such poor pictures but if you can use your imagination please. Should I border this quilt or just put a binding on and call it finished? I am really undecided and would really like your opinions.
    This quilt top really is straight but I guess it is not pinned on the wall very well.

    We are flexible like that. OKAY?

    I would add a border, but I add borders 99% of the time. I think it's rare that a border doesn't enhance a quilt.

    I would make 2 borders- a thin green one and then the rose on in the 3rd pic. I love this fabric line!

    I think adding a little green boarder first then the other flower one would be beautiful

    I like the look of that fabric you have up for the border and use the green for the binding. Very pretty!

    I also vote for a thinner green border then add the flowered fabric for the outer border. I love your fabrics.

    Yes for the border. Love the idea of a thin green border and then the border shown would tie the whole quilt together beautifully!

    Beautiful fabrics!!! The border really adds to it. I vote for the small green border then the flower border. Very pretty!!!!
