    I just got this top finished for our nephew. I have been trying to decide if it needs another border, perhaps in a maroon or a burgundy. Its a good size as it is, he will be 9 yrs old in a few months.

    Thanks!

    The whole quilt

    It looks great! If it is big enough you could just bind it with the deep red colour, but 9 yr olds are still growing so making it bigger won't come amiss either.

    Oooooo! I like it. I think another border would be great. Do you have fabric similar in color to the red in the quilt. I love how you put sashing around each disappearing block and how each block is different. Gives it a nice clean, smooth look. You did a wonderful job with this quilt.

    I don't think I have enough of a dark red to do another border but I am heading to the fabric store Monday to get the backing fabric and of course add to the stash so I will look.

    This was my first D9P and I am real pleased with how easy it was and how nice it came out. I still have 2 more to do, this time for girls and an applique quilt to finish. All that before Dec 6!

    Thanks for all the compliments and suggestions!

    If it was mine, I would add the additional border.

    An additional border in a darker color would be nice, though it is great as it is too!!!

    IMAO I would add another contrast-border, although it looks great even without it.
