    Would you put a border on this?

    My niece is expecting and requested a quilt, how could I say no
    And since I bought a whole Fq pack, I made another one for my other great niece

    I would, I think.
    I'd probably use a much darker aqua or red-orange as a narrow border (cut 1.75") against the blocks and then whatever else you wished for a bit wider border.

    I agree on the dark aqua--it would look great. This is going to be really cute.

    I think a border would just enhance them, and they are lovely.

    thanks for the replies!
    how wide of a border? these things are pretty big for babies already, 60" square. (niece requested that size). the squares are 7" unfinished....
    Here is a more close up pic. I didn't feel it at first, pink is not my thing, but now they are starting to grow on me
    The fabric is moda flirt

    I don't think every quilt has to have a border, and if yours are already the size you want, then why add one? I think they're lovely as they are.

    Hi

    I would put on a small thinner border dark to frame it and then what ever the width of your blocks another border
    a lighter shade... I hope we helped...

    They are beautiful without, but a border would look good too.
