    I love the quilt! With or without an additional border it's beautiful. I liked the suggestion of the piano key border with all the different colors of the fabrics that you had you used it the quilt.

    I agree a scrappy border would look great, though it does not really need a border! Depends on size/

    I think it is great the way it is. Another border might make it look 'out of balance' and just doesn't seem to be needed, in my humble opinion!

    I love your quilt! So whimsical... As others said, if the size is okay then leave it as-is.

    Your quilt is so cute. Try laying a strip of your orange next to it and see what you think .Or like others have suggested a pieced border with your left over scraps would be great what ever you decide this is a wonderful quilt with lots of personality.

    Awesome quilt! I agree, it's fine as is, but if you need to make it larger, I think a piano key border would look great. I'll attach a picture of a quilt I did with similar colors to give you an idea of how it looks.

    It is cute just like it is; so if you want it bigger, put a boarder on.

    I vote for the scrappy or a multicolor stripe binding cut on the bias so it has that spiral look. You did a fantastic job, just love it! The recipient is a fortunate person!
