    To me it only depends on what size you want it to end up. I think it looks great right now without...but if you need it to be bigger, well, it will look great with the red one also. I would just make sure it ends up wider than the blue border.

    Could you take a picture with some of the red beside it on one side?

    I like it as it is.

    It's lovely just the way it is. But the red would add a dramatic touch!

    i think it could take another border if you wanted it bigger - have you got enough of the red in the 9Ps? I agree it should be wider than the blue - maybe half as big again.

    I like it the way it is...but it is true what others are saying, it depends how much bigger you want to make the quilt.

    Really cute quilt!
