    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.

    Well, I did re-create the design in EQ7. :) It's mainly just squares and HSTs.

    Looks awesome! What about a black batik border, then maybe a flanged binding adding in one of the other colors?

    I've also thought about using long strips for the border. I'll have to see what I have. Maybe I'd have enough to do one row of strips and then use the rest for the binding.

    It will be gorgeous either way. I love it as it is now, but think borders would be beautiful too! I think it would be hard to go wrong at this point!
