    This is beautiful! You did a great jod for not having a pattern. I think maybe a 2" plain black border and then a 3" border of the black-on-black batik. It would then look like one of those paintings you see in the high end hotels, you have the painting then a black mat and a black frame. They are always very eye catching and very beautiful. But it is your call to make you are the creater of the master piece. Great Job your DD will love it.

    Nice job! If it was mine I think I would put a 3" border just to finish it off and tie it together.

    I think such a special quilt might like an added touch of a special border.?

    Absolutely stunning Pam! I do think it needs a border though, to give it room inside it's frame. How about just a plain one in that black on black to give you scope to get some of your fabulous quilting on there? Would look great in a coffee or old goldish thread...

    Unbelievable that you did that without a pattern! Outstanding! You could simplify the border and just do a solid rather than a 4 patch. Nice work!

    First of all, your quilt is beautiful ! I love the colors and it looks so well made ! You don't mention the depth of the mattress it is going on, but a 68" x 89" quilt on a 54" x 75" mattress will have a 7" drop on each side. If that is enough for you, then I wouldn't add a border. If you add the other rows, and it becomes 76" x97, it will have an 11" drop on each side, if I have my figures right. I like a generous drop on a quilt, but either way, your quilt is gorgeous !

    that is a beautiful quilt.. if it hangs on the bed where you want it to it is done. I like miine to hang down enough to cover and box springs so I would make it bigger.

    IMHO I think your gorgeous creation should be a little larger, depending on the mattress and your daughter's future bed size. Right now the quilt will maybe just barely cover the sides of a 7"-thick double mattress. If your daughter has a mattress any thicker than 7 inches, buys a pillow top mattress set down the road, or goes into a queen set later, your quilt will be way too small and might be relegated to a cupboard.

    Thank you everyone, you are all so generous and kind. I like the idea of a slim border and then a little larger one. That means I'm going to need more fabric since all I have in black is the JR strips.

    I think I can handle doing that rather than a 4-patch border.
