Just finished sewing this together this morning!!

I texted my daughter last night (who the quilt is for) and told her I only had two seams to do. Then I remembered about the row of black-on-black batik 4-patch that I was going to put ALL around the outside. Darn!!! I don't know if I want to do anymore!

The pattern is called Faceted Jewels though I didn't use a pattern. Saw one on an Amish quilt site and figured it up from that.

That is beautiful. If it is the size you wanted then I think it could be finished although I am sure the border you had in mind would look wonderful.

My daughter has a full size bed, which is 54"x75". The quilt right now is 68"x89". If I add the other rows it will be 76"x97".

What a beautiful quilt!! You are good to do that without the pattern!! I think it needs the borders to make it large enough. :thumbup: :D :thumbup:

This is a beautiful quilt. It will look great with or without a pieced border.

I would leave it as it is.
It's beautiful!
Add black as the binding.

Very beautiful quilt top and with no pattern! Such talent you have! I agree that if it is size you need the border you had planned would look great, but a simple dark border would work too! Just gorgeous!

Yes, I think I will leave it and use the jelly roll strips of the black for the binding instead. I think, but would have to figure it up again to be sure, that I don't have quite enough of the black to do all of the 4-patch blocks out of the strips.
