Default Just About Finished Omigosh Quilt!!

Here is the quilt top almost finished. The pattern calls for a solid 1 inch finished border, then a 1 inch finished white border then a 3.5 inch finished solid border. Many people here gave me good suggestions for a more creative border on the last post I made.

I haven't decided anything yet. However, I stitched around the outer edge of the quilt so that the outter seams won't come undone and just doing that was really, really difficult. This quilt is very heavy because of all the seam allowances and while I have a really good extension table, I don't have one that drops intot he table. I'm not sure I have it in me to do one, two or three borders!!

I've considered maybe hiring out the borders but haven't made any decisions yet. Would love to hear any additional opinions on how you would finish this quilt.

I am so in awe of this quilt. Each time it my jaw drops. Whatever you decide about borders, this is going to be spectacular.

Amazing, even more beautiful than the last time you posted a picture! I thought to make the simple borders they ask for that by comparison you would be grateful for their ease. How about using every color in your quilt placed exactly under that square? Not sure how big your blocks are but would mean tons of cutting, joining and piecing for your border.

You can and will do whatever you wish with your skills no matter how burned out you will err on the side of beauty.
Thank you.

That is so,so beautiful. I cannot imagine the work in this quilt. It really is jaw dropping as someone has already said. Do finish it yourself. It deserves your hands to finish it. It is just outstanding!

That is so pretty! Have you laid out any fabric to see what you like for borders? That's what I'd do.

I would be tempted to try 2 white borders (one narrower than the other) with a narrow colored border between. I would probably wait to see how that looked before selecting binding. Please be sure to post when done.
