    That's beautiful. Adding a border depends on how big you want the quilt. I think either way will be fine. And by the way, I LOVE how your imphasize (SP?) the word CHRIST in CHRISTmas!!

    That is beautiful! If you do add a border, I would think a border in the green you used in the stars would just make them POP!

    I think one last border would tie it together perfectly.

    very nice. I made a quilt with the friendship and loved it. Love your color choices and I would probably end with the green to lighten it.

    If it were me I would add two more borders...the first a thin green one and the last a wider darker border...But I love borders so thats just me. Either way it is very pretty.

    I vote for a border, too. That would really set it off nicely!
