    Wow! Nice, serene, and looks very square and right for a first quilt. Not at all wonky and ripply. Good for you. Would a print border fit your vision? Or an appliqué border? Honestly, if you quilted & bound it as is, it would be super and an above average first quilt, for sure. Post a pic or two when it's done, eh?

    are you asking about (quilting designs)? or about adding additional borders, design features? i thought at first you were ready to quilt it, but then read responses and am confused (aweful early in the morning)
    anyway, if it is quilting designs... when the quilt top is very geometric (straight lines-squares) curvy designs work very well to set them off.

    It looks fine the way it is. If you wanted to add another border use the material that was used in the quilt, like the blue/black/dark purple,the dark pink or even the light pink or purple. Can't tell what the colors are exactly.

    I agree with SueDor. I would just add one of the colors used. But i think it looks really good the way it is. Nice job!

    Hi
    I think the way it looks right now is good.
    Your sashing actually looks like a border.
