Default Border or No Border ?

Should I add a border, or just bring the back fabric to the front when I bind it ?
I trimmed a bandana for the center & raw edge appliqued, then quilted it (the bandana).

you don't show what the back is-so hard to tell if that should be used as a binding or not-the quilt doesn't necessarily need an additional border at this point- unless you want to make it larger- for a binding either the blue or the red would work nicely- depending on what you plan for backing. personally i would not bring the backing to the front- i would use an actual binding-but that's just me.

Very nice. A border would look good but if you use a little darker color for your binding, that would set it off nicely too.

Good job so far. IMHO, a narow border of the red, followed by a wider one of the blue would be great.

A border would like nice and my preference would be the blue.
