Sorry i don't seem to be able to post pictures.

it's for a wall hanging if that makes a difference.

Thanks for your help.

They both look good. I love your choice of colors. If it were for a throw quilt, I would say add the border, but for a wall hanging, I think binding only. Either is very nice and neither will look bad.

Just binding, I think. Awesome quilt, BTW!

I like how the border picks up the blue in the quilt. Either way would look good.

I'd do just the binding, that way you would first see the great job you did on this.

I usually vote no borders (at least on my quilts, cause I just don't like to add them!), but I like the picture with the border better this time!

Both are great! If I had to choose however I would say border. You will not (imho) go wrong either way so the big question is what do you think?

I think binding completes it well. There is a lot going on in the quilt itself. Beautiful!
