    Beautiful quilt! I don't think it needs borders, unless you just want it to be a little bigger. It looks pretty big already. I love your design and colors. :-D :-D

    Here's another vote for borders. I think they frame the quilt nicely and give it a nice finished appearance.

    I like to have borders too ... I like the center green for the smaller inner border.

    Yes, a border!! Borders take the most punishment and your quilt is soooooo beautiful I'd like to see it last forever or at least be easy to repair!! I always vote for a border!!

    I'm thinking the green that you are showing at the bottom. It looks like it's color is in between the other two and matches really well.

    You have a beautiful quilt and IMHO the double border would frame your masterpiece!

    From what I can see, the green is different shades from top to bottom with the bottom being the middle shade, which would be my preference. Pops enough, but not too much. The darker one doesnt show enough, and the light one too bright ... though that could be totally different IRL.

    And then the outer, yes the dark burgundy!

    I like the 2 borders myself, though it is a beautiful quilt and it looks pretty without it too.

    I vote for borders, both of them, as they seem to balance the whole look of the quilt better than without.

    Binding would be enough for my taste, but a border would look great too. I prefer the darker marbled green at the top for the border.

    This gets my vote as well. The two darker greens tend to blend in with the last row, while the lighter one will not.

    I love old fashioned looking patterns with no borders, but this wonderful design will look more finished with the two borders.

    I like the borders too....hard to decide which green though. Both would look great. Awesome quilt.

    Love this quilt! And yes, borders! My preference is actually for the darker green...but which ever you choose it will look really nice!

    I don't think it needs borders. However, I'd be tempted to put a cream border next to the pieced border to make it stand out better.
