    Orange? Never would have thought of that, but going to dig out some orange and audition! I'll let you know.

    I don't think it calls for a border. Think it might detract from those really great lighthouses. Agree with Julie in NM, do a scrappy binding with left over fabric.

    Looks great as is. If you need to enlarge it then you could add borders.

    Exactly my thoughts, or if not enough fabric, a striped binding cut on the bias would look funky too.
    This is what I thought, too! :thumbup:

    I'd leave it like it is. Looks great with lots of color. If you need it bigger add a color already in it.

    Move over, Charlee, I want it too. My 2-year-old granddaughter would LOVE it! Why do you feel it doesn't work?

    Sooooo Whimsical! Deciding factor # 1 - Size. How does it measure-up for the intended purpose? Does it need a border to reach the intended size? Deciding factor # 2. What color/s? Not as easy as factor #1. With such a cute top, a sparkle, or mini border would set the top into a neat frame before applying the border to achieve the size necessary. Your choices are almost limitless. The piano key would be ideal.

    It's already a show stopper. Kudos.

    Great job on selection different fabrics in each block. I would add a border to complete it. I just finished quilt that had a lot of different colors in each block. I picked two colors that were dominate in the quilt. It made it look compete.

    Unless you really like the idea of a border, I would leave it as is. The blue sashing acts as a kind of border by itself. I think the quilt looks great as it is!!

    When in doubt, leave it out.
