I don't put borders on a lot of my quilts, but I think this one is calling out for something.:) Just my 2 cents.
It looks great!!

Sarah Vee

WOW! I could gaze at this a long time. Beautiful work. I can see a big wide red, blue or white border - or nothing. Good luck with your decision:)

Muriel Riggs

A border is needed to give the eyes a place to stop and rest. A great quilt.

Chartreuse Moose

I'd vote for a border...but then again...it is more about what you find appealing!

Monica

I love it! One simple dark blue border is my only suggestion.

wishes, true and kind

Absolutely no border necessary in my opinion :)

Cara

Oh. My. That is impressive.

Ronda

This is beautiful. And it should look the way you want it to look.

But since you asked... if it was my quilt, I'd go with a a pieced border picking up the same half square triangles (one, two or three rows), but maybe in a larger size using a blue/dark blue combination.

I look forward to seeing what you decide upon!

After looking one more time, let me amend that. : )

I'd make another row of the same blocks (same size) all the way around, but use the blue/dark blue combination.

Great quilt! I might try either a red or blue border just to frame it.

Heidi

no idea about the border, but the quilt is just great !!! I would give it a home anytime ;-))

Barbara

It looks great without a border, but a big red, white or blue solid color border would look good too. I guess it depends on if the quilt is the size you want it?

You're have the patience of a saint to make that many 1/2 square triangles, either that or crazy. :)

Ohhh - I like it a lot! I'd be tempted to leave it without a border. I love how effective one simple shape can be.

Rachaeldaisy

This is an awesome quilt, Its so full of movement! I think a couple of rows of the same half triangles in the darker shades would do the trick. But whatever you do will look great! I look forward to seeing it!

Marcia

Great job! Each quilt is a work of art with no right or wrong... to border or not to border? Hmmmm, I would add a border if the quilt were mine. But, again, I say there is no right or wrong. Lay it on a piece of fabric that could be the border and ponder it for a few days...

Chris

Its beautiful as is. I vote for a simple, traditional red binding.

Christy

Whoo! That makes me dizzy!! =)

Jen

Oooo - a skinny, skinny red border and a wide neutral border (@4") would be great - lovely!

Karen Beigh

I think a border might be in order.

Iris G

I love it .. border or not ... it is great as it is. However, I think that Jen may be on a winning idea .. skinny red and then neutral. Thansk for sharing

Virtual Quilter

All that work should be framed .... I would add a narrow white border (about half the size of the triangles) then a wider dark blue border.

Sylvie

I think you should add a border OR add a little interest in the quilt by turning one triangle, as if you had made a mistake. I would be eye-catching.

Lin

729 triangles?! You deserve some kind of award, Beautiful!

Roselie

I'm thinking a small red border would be the perfect finishing touch but of course it is your call.

Blogless me

My humble opinion: definitely a border!
