I finished piecing the quilt top! Now the big question is do I put borders on it? It is already almost 60″ x 79″ so I don’t need the size – it is HUGE for a cuddle quilt. What do you all think?
And in case you were wondering what made me decide to switch my layout in the first place. I was playing around with Ole Frog Eyes and wanted to test out their On Point quilt. Check out my mock up here. I have to say how much I love this tool because it really gives me a chance to see my quilt before I go through the process of laying it all out on my floor. (This is not a sponsored post, just telling you about a product I love is all.)
this is making me want to pull out my christmas wips 🙂
I vote no borders, OR, if you choose a border, something no more than 2″ finished.
With the blocks on point i don’t think it needs a border. Very pretty quilt
I am thinking like Debbe, just a small border to frame it all would be enough. Looks really nice!
I think this layout and effect is perfection!! I agree with the other two. Maybe a very thin border if the sashing holly print! Gorgeous! 🙂
I also think a thin (2.5″ unfinished) border of the green would be good – just to give a little breathing room between the red holly sashing & whichever binding you choose.
I agree with the rest, If you do a border make is small. I love the look od the blocks on point.
I feel like a salmon swimming upstream, since I am going to go against the tide of opinion, here! LOL I think it looks super with no border at all!
Thanks for the shout out for Ole Frog Eyes!
I vote no border — and it looks fabulous! I need to train my brain to think “turn on point”!!!!
wow that looks great!!
I will go against the crowd.. I think it needs a border!
Don’t mention the C word just yet xxx
Looks great! I’ve never heard of that site.
Just a framing border. I think it is great set on- point!
I think it looks great as is…no border, just the binding…and if you decide to do a border, make it very narrow and small, like the sashing you already have…keep it simple. It’s just lovely…makes me want to bring out all my Christmas fabrics….I have a whole large drawer of just Christmas! I have my youngest granddaughter’s Christmas stocking to make too! It’s all planned out, just need to jump in and make it!
Border. Definitely. Will frame it and keep the binding from “running into” the delicate sashing.
No border,just binding. It is Sweet as is 🙂 Have to try out that frog eyes one of these days.
Haha, I think it’d look great with a border. Even a big one picking up some of the red and white and bright green from the blocks. It is a traditional sampler piece even with its clean lines so it could totally rock a giant border and look amazing-sauce. So I guess were
We’re not that much help with all our different opinions 🙂
If I had realized you were using such a narrow sashing I would have suggested using the QAYG method and now it would be practically all quilted . It’s a great process be
cause you can turn those blocks ’round and ’round and ’round to quilt them any way you want and do all that fancy stuff so easily. Would have been great
I still vote no border. Maybe a white or a bright red binding.
I think a thin border also. 2 1/2″ would be just fine.
I have no idea about a border, I just have to post because I need to say ” I love this” and “I want one” are these the blocks in your tutorials here on your blog?
