Please tell me if you think that I should borders on this quilt. It's suppose to be an Asian theme, hope you can see the prints.
Should I use a blender and another print? I do not have any of the fabric in the blocks, they were all fat quarters.

Personally, I would add a border. Maybe a thin 1 1/2" border in a black. Then a wider border, maybe 4 1/2" in a nice pretty Asian print. Bind darker than your print.

I would consider pulling out the bright blue or the very light green. JMHO

I love the pattern and colors of your quilt. It's beautiful. I think it needs a border.

I vote for the border. A narrow 1" border and then a wider one.

Im thinking a thin red asian print border followed by a wider gold (like gold in your quilt top) Red is in alot of asian designs anyway right??? this is really cool. dont forget to keep us posted. Thank you for sharing.

I think a border would be in order for this one...maybe a narrow black border then a wider one picking out a colour from the prints...then bind in black. Let us know what you end up doing....lovely colours and design.

I would consider pulling the red or gold to the border.
