    Here's my latest baby quilt. I sewed from 10:00 last night until 3:00 this morning to get the top done (baby is due October 31 and is a girl). I only had to do the frog stitch 3 times (luckily I caught the misplaced square early on and only had to undo 4" each time). Now the question is: to border or not to border. I'd appreciate your input. Thanx.

    Very nice. I might put a border on it depending on how big it is. Either way great job! :thumbup:

    Very pretty. And you kept it all together even working all night (that's usually when I screw up LOL). I would put a narrow border of the pinwheel fabric and then a larger border (same size as blocks) of one of the block colors. all your colors are lovely. Great job!

    That is what I would do. It's such a pretty quilt and I think borders would finish it off nicely.

    I found the 3-D pinwheel on the tutorials on this site and the rest I just threw together and then rearranged the blocks until I found just the right mix. It was fun to put together and I'd do another one in a heart beat.

    My decision would be based on the size needed. I think it would look nice with a border, if it wouldn't make it too big. If so, It looks lovely without a border.

    I believe borders give the finishing touch. But, it's whatever suits your fancy.

    I agree with janRN. It would finish off nicely & the child could enjoy for a longer time.

    Cute baby quilt. I agree with the others a small border same as base for pinwheel and then another of one of the block colors.

    :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup: Love the pinwheels, colors, layout...just perfect! I agree with the other member that said a thin boarder of of the pinwheel fabric and then a wider one of one of your block colors. This is a fabulous quilt.

    ************************************************** **********I agree, the child will want to use it after infancy. Adding borders would make it usable for many more years.
