    I am a border person myself but ya know its really a personal thing. I like the green you have with the red/burgandy. Looks great. Love your quilt.

    I guess I'm the oddball out. I like it better without.

    I like either the second or the third green for the inner border. Your quilt is beautiful!

    from what I can see there isn't much difference in the the greens. It is very attractive quilt and the borders frame it and say," look at me". It would be great either way with or without. By the time I get that far I'm sorta tired of it and the thought of adding 3,4 or 5 borders wears me out but they really do look nice on a quilt and if it doesn't make it too big for your use, go for it and put those borders on. It is so pretty.

    a narrow light green next to the top, followed by the wider dark green around the outside would be outstanding I think, if you decided to put on borders, but is gorgeous just the way it is.

    I like it with the green, then red border you shoe in the photos. It just tends to frame out everything else. Nice job!

    It's a beautiful quilt. I think a green border would look good but it looks great as is.

    Definitely borders. And I think I like the middle one. Is it a green? The top one blends too much with the rest of the quilt. Awesome job, btw.

    Yes to both borders. As Ruby McKim would say, a strong quilt pattern is like the bull in the pasture: you want to have a fence; the stronger the bull; the stronger the border!

    Borders... when i look at my quilts and have a hard time desiding it needs one or not.I picture it as if it was in a picture frame. I almost always put borders.

    Your quilt is beautiful and I think a border will be a good finishing off.

    beautiful quilt, the brown color you have held up I am assuming your plan to use. I would say go ahead, it would show off the whole quilt. If not, it's still beautiful. Whatever your heart tells you go with it, you won't be wrong

    My vote is definitely for a border to tie it all together.
