    opinions please :D
    I just wanted to use the panel, and built the quilt around it.
    it's already 56" :shock: and I think I still need borders??
    should I just leave it like this and call it good?
    It's going to be a donation

    Very cute. If you don't want to go bigger I think it would look nice just bound with the dark navy colour.

    Well until I saw the corners I was thinking a border of the lighter tan (?) but with the corners that color I think you would lose them.

    I like it the way it si , but if you want another border maybe the navy blue ?

    If you want it bigger then add a row of blocks to the top and bottom only and then put a couple of borders around the whole thing. (I don't like square quilts!).

    Maybe a medium blue border and dark blue binding?
    BTW, that's a really nice quilt. The recipient will love it

    I was thinking just add a dark blue binding and you're all set--and I can see that's what many others are thinking. :-D

    I agree. I don't think it needs boarders

    The owls are adorable & I read somewhere that they are really stylish as appliques & such on clothes, bed clothes, etc this year, so you are stylish whether you meant to be or not. I like the owls as your theme & whoever receives this will too. Yellow & blue are such a favorite combo of mine.

    Do you want it longer so it's not square? Are you happy with the size that you have? Just put a navy binding on it and call it done if that's the size you want. Put a navy border on and the tan for binding if you want it longer.
    I love your inside panel!!!

    I have one more of the owls, you are welcome to it, just PM your address :-D


    thanks for all the suggestions and compliments :) .
    I think I'll just go with a dark binding and finish it that way (something like taking the easy way out :D )
