    I just love this playful quilt. Size should dictate to border or not. It sure looks great as is...you could lay strips of border on one side and look and see if it makes a diff or not.

    I would put a little print border on it like boxes or dots with the colors that are in the quilt. Edie

    Unless you need it to be larger, why add more. It is wonderful eye candy as is!

    I love it the way it is. The sashing already makes the outside border.

    I love & want this quilt!!
    It don't think it needs a border but if it me, I would put a multi-colored piano key border.
    Would make your lighthouses reall *POP*

    Wow!!! What a unique quilt. I love it. I would just bind it and call it finished.

    Definitely needs a border. It's beautiful but it's like a picture without a frame.

    I think the sashing works as a border. Add a border in darker blue if you want the finished quilt bigger. Bind in a dark blue.

    I wouldn't border it if it is large enough as is. the sashing gives enough border. By the way, that is one beautiful quilt.

    Very cute....I like the idea of pieced border using leftovers from light-houses if needing to make it bigger, but looks great as is also.

    You can do whatever feels good to you. A matching border would add "something", but surely it doesn't need one. Besides, any child would drool to have it just as it is. :thumbup:

    Either way, it's beautiful! It would look great in my new condo at the beach!
