Beautiful quilt! I agree, dark blue border if you feel like adding it, and I'd go with matching binding.

It is absolutely lovely. If it were mine, I would add a border as a frame for the lovely work, but it is your quilt and you need to do whatever makes you happiest. froggyintexas

No. I actually think a border would take away from it. If the size is OK maybe just bind it with the same fabric as the backing. You can also roll the bacvking to the front for a softer binding if the quilt is for use. It is very pretty. I hope and pray your sister will be well soon.

I agree with Lori a dark border would complete it for me. Let us know what you decide.

What a beaut. quilt. Depending on the size you want, I'd put the dark blue border on or maybe just that dark blue as binding. That would give it a finished "frame".

Unless you wanted it bigger, it's beautiful as is!

If you bind it with the dark blue I don't think it would really need a border, unless you wanted to make it a little bigger though.
