    Here is the finished (maybe) quilt top. My DH wants a brown border so I added it in between but now I am wondering if I should or should not put the outer brown border as well. Thought? Which do you prefer?

    Yes, go for the extra row of brown. Makes it look complete. besides, it'll be easier to do the binding on a solid piece than the pieced border!!

    It is purely a personal thing - no right or wrong answers. I would go for another outer border,however, to help frame the quilt - but that is just me.

    BTW I like the quilt - Nice job.

    Thank you so much. :) It is my first that is any real size. The rest have all been lap quilt size, table runners, wall hangings, and other quilted gifts. :) DH loves it so that makes me happy too!

    I think another boarder would look great, would finish it off nicely.
