Default Now what?

So I like how this turned out and it's just the size of a queen bed top which is great but does it NEED a border? I usually do like a border so in a way it looks unfinished to me, but in a way I like it as is.
what do you think? I really like the size as is. Hmmn, what do you think?

Love it as it is. But you will lose the sashing around the top and bottom two side ornaments if you do not add a narrow border.

I do not normally add borders, and this one is fine as is especially if you like the size as is. I would bind in a red print for a final festive touch.

If it is the size you want don't add a border. If you want it larger then, add one. Nice quilt!

Beautiful! I think I would border it. Maybe a narrow red, then a bit wider green. Bind in red.

How about just binding it to match the ornament sashing that touches the sides? If you are happy with the size, don't mess with it.

I would just bind in a contrasting color. Either red or the cream background fabric. Very festive!
