    If it feels done, it's done. Looks great to me. I love the little turtles. Are they embroidered?

    I love the quilt - and as I am learning - there are no rules! But - I would say that it looks done to me as is.

    But . . . if I was forced to add more border - I might add a narrow tan (or gold - what ever that is) and then the dark green again - to frame it. But again, I am not sure that it needs it.

    Is that embroidery in the center? It is adorable!!

    If the quilt tells you it's done, it's done. Lovely.

    I agree if it feels done to you that is what counts.

    If I were to add any other border it would be the color light green that the turtles are. Would draw attention to the turtles more.

    I ended up putting a 1/2" folded border and a 4" green n gold border. Now it is complete in my mind

    I'm with Shemjo - gold binding would look good.
