    After doing borders on two quilts in the last few days I am so tired of it! This is the first border I had planned for this quilt and looking at it I'm thinking... does it really need the second border? It's about 76" x 76" now and the next border would be 4 or 5 inches (I'd have to measure the pattern repeat again to be sure).

    Sorry, Pam, but I vote yes for the second border. And it is a really beautiful quilt!

    Me too. Yea on the second boarder, but when you are in the mood. If I sew when I am not in the mood I will surely screw it up.

    I have to agree with the others. I like the second border, too.

    I'm afraid I agree - Pam, second border to really give a deep frame to the stars, otherwise they're a little too close to the edge! Put it away for a while and come back when you're more in the mood for borders!

    Absolutely go with the 2nd border. It will frame it so nicely. Your quilt is beautiful Pam!!!

    yes, I too, vote for the second border. The middle is so large, that with just the one border, it looks unfinished.
    Great quilt all the way, though! :D
