    I would just to kinda frame it. I'd use the light blue as in the background of kitty. It will look just as nice without.

    I think this will look cute just like it is or with borders. It took me a long time before I could allow myself to make a quilt without using borders. LOL Either way you finish this, it will make some little girls' eyes brighten up. Very nice job!

    I think you should just bind it in a bright pink that matches the pink around the hello kitty.

    susan, it looks great without a border... but a border might just "finish" the quilt! if you know what I mean... either the light blue or a light pink I would think... I just love it!
    I quilt for my sanity!

    It is so adorable and bindng it as is would be just fine unless you need to make the quilt bigger.

    Love your quilt, it is so happy. Either with or without a sashing would look nice.

    I like it the way it is. A border may take away from the rainbow colors on the edge.
    Beware the SnapDragon... part of me has snapped and the other part is draggin.

    Either way it will be wonderful! If you do decide to leave the border off and are going to FMQ or LAQ it, be sure and do a line of stay stitching about 1/8" from the edge this will stablize it so the pieces of the braid won't come apart as it's quilted.

    It is great the way it is but if you need it bigger, a pink border would look good

    I agree. I think a fairly wide pink binding would be perfect. This quilt is too, too cute! I love it!

    That is just too cute! I agree that a matching tonal blue or pink border would frame it nicely.

    I would only add a border if you want the size to be a little bigger. I would bind it with a brighter fabric. Maybe audition colors for binding from your leftover strips?
