    Would you add a border to this?

    I don't know how long I have had this panel or where I got it, but I think it is really cute. However it seems to be an odd size to me. It measures 22" by 42". Do you think I should add a border to it? I am going to try to sell it, and want it to be a good usable size.

    I would as I think it would give it a more finished look. Plus I think it would draw the eye in to the great pictures. Darling quilt.

    Yes, I think a border would finish it off nicely.

    I agree. A border would do wonders for it. Great piece, btw.

    i would put some pieced blocks just on one side... not both because then it might look like you forgot the top and bottom. then, to tie it together, i'd put a border around the whole thing.

    I would add a border, 22" x 42" does seem like an odd size.

    yes, I think it needs to be a bit wider. The suggestion QuiltnNan is a wonderful one to add a row of blocks to one side! I would have never thought of that, but I love that idea! It is a really pretty panel!
