    It 's a lovely quilt your sister is going to love it no matter what you decide.
    I personally just like a (solid) border. To me it just is the final "frame" of a quilt. But it's beautiful now & I know your sister will love it either way.

    I have to agree - I like it just the way it is, but if you choose to add a border, it'll be just as beautiful! Hope all goes well with your sister's surgery

    I agree, I would bind it in a dark fabric. Looks good

    Very pretty. I like the idea of a dark blue border. I think it will make the quilt look more finished.

    I think it looks good just the way it is. I wish your sister the best with her surgery.

    Actually, I'd do Two borders, a thin white one to draw out that white in the quilt, and then another blue, perhaps 3 inch. It would also give her more quilt. Good job.

    I would just bind it in white...no borders!
    Hope everything went ok with your sister's surgery!
