    Hi,

    This quilt is 54x72 and a nice size lap quilt for my aunt. I'm trying to decide if I should add a border to it or not. What are your thoughts?

    I would add a double border to give it a more finished look.

    I always think a border finishes a quilt off nicely. I love the colors in your quilt. Your aunt will love it.

    Yes, a double border would be very nice. choose two of the colors to blend.

    I would add a border, to finish it off and frame it up. A double border would look nice, too.

    I'd put a striped border on it, something that pulls all the colors in.

    So, this may seem like a goofy question, what size should the borders be if I go with the double border?
