    I can't decide if this is done or not. It was a mini round robin with a couple of my bestest quilt buddies. Was thinking a border of 2" blocks using the colored fabrics from the quilt. OR do I just call it done and add a binding using the colored fabrics? I need a name for too.....my daughter usually hits it right on the mark with a name, but we are all coming up blank on this one. Thanks for your help :-D

    I can see it with just a binding in a dark color, but a border would also look nice. I guess it depends on what size quilt you want.

    I agree with most ... it looks fantastic already, just bind it in one of the dark colors from the quilt. Great job!

    It already has a border, doesn't need another one unless you need to make it bigger

    I really like this one, and I love the color's.
    With the leaves falling and the pinwheels turning, how about something like "Fall Winds", or "End of Summer" for names.

    Beautiful, but a dark binding would set it off to perfection.

    ITA with the others ... the border you have there IS your border! Finish it off with a scrappy binding of the assorted colours within ... or keep it simple and use your background fabric solo.

    Names?
    Autumn Splendor?
    Autumn Glory?

    "Equinox" jumped into my head. It's lovely, and I agree with the no-border-colored-binding crowd.

    Very pretty. I don't think it needs a border.

    I think it looks done - with the only thing missing being a dark binding.

    I think binding in one of your darker colors would be a lovely way to complete this quilt. I love the suggestion of "Spin on Nature" as the name.
