    Split rail

    Been awhile since I posted, here is something I have been working on. Just have to decide if I need another row or do some sort of odd border. Right now it is pretty square. Suggestions with links to examples are welcome.

    Your quilt is absolutely beautiful. I think it does need borders and that would really set it off.

    I love your top. If it were mine I think I would just add a small (3-4 inch) border to frame it.

    Very dramatic and modern. Great job! I'd like a border in black about 1/2 the width of your bands, then a 2nd in red 3 X the first border.

    I second Diane on Summit's answer. This just gorgeous and borders will finish it off just right.

    I did a similar lap quilt with a narrow red border, wider black border, and then the binding was the b/w print with white beads meandering which many thot set it off. I'll try to add a pic.

    Your color placement is really pretty - looks 3D to my eye.

    That would be my suggestion, too. I love this! All these red, black & white quilts really inspire me to leave my comfort zone & make one! This one is gorgeous!

    What a gorgeous quilt! I think I'd make it a tad longer, in order to cover the foot of the bed. Just can't get over how elegant that pattern looks, in those colors! Wow!
