    Making this for my brother for Christmas 2011. I am working ahead. The 9 rows are not sewed together yet. I think that it needs borders. What do you think?

    I think that a border would finish this off beautifully.

    I like that fish fabric! Do you recall it's name or info at all? Beautiful quilt :)

    Spectacular! I would add a border...maybe a thin stop, then border. Good job on being ahead for Christmas.

    Love it! I would put a 1" (finished size) border first to frame it, then maybe a 4" border to finish it. Maybe the brown/taupe fabric for the 1" and a complementary green/turquiois for the border.

    It's beautiful. Maybe a thin brown border with a green (or whatever color the fish background is) outer border.

    I'd probably do 3 borders. One about 2",then a 1" (so it finishes at 1/2" in a color that makes it pop) and then another larger, maybe 4" border in the same color as the first.

    I love it though!
