    As you can see this "going to be" quilt has 10 sides. What do you suggest as to how I should finish it. Leave it as is or add fabric to square it up?
    Thanks for your ideas.

    10 sides

    That is beautiful, I'd probably want it to be squared up for myself, but I wouldn't know where to begin doing it :-D :-D !

    I'm no help, but as is, it looks like it would fit my round table just fine:) Very nice.

    Thank you all for your comments! Had not thought of it as a table topper, good idea.

    I would it as is. I would be afraid squaring it up might take the beauty away from it.

    As lovely as your quilt is in it's round form, I would square it off for a bed quilt. It is an awesome quilt as it is, however!!!!

    I love it just as is for a table topper. If I was going to use it as a quilt I would square it off

    Beautiful pattern and fabric choices How big is it? I think the size would help to decide what to do.

    That would be fantastic for special guests to cuddle up in when they come and watch TV with you.

    Or as a table topper. I wouldn't square it off, that would take away lots of the beauty of it.

    Real good job on this one.

    You've done a great job piecing & love the colors. It looks so artistic just the way it is, maybe not for a bed.

    I think it would make a beautiful quilt center. It's in my favorite color too so that helps me imagine it. LOL

    Oh my, that is simply stunning and in my colours too :) I would leave it as is and bind it, perfect for a tabletopper.

    What's the intended use? If it's a wallhanging or table topper, I'd leave it as is - it's a very nice design. If it's bigger and you want to use it as a throw or something like that, I'd square it off.

    I would square it up with a dark fabric (ie your black in there) and it would make the design pop even more. Its very pretty, kind of reminds me of some of the Amish designs that are bold.
