Quilting in the New Year.....

.....Has gotten off to a slow start thanks to travels and still being sick.    However, I have been able to get a couple of tops completed for Sunshine.   The tops will eventually be sent off to a quilting angel to be finished up.
 First top started with 5 orphan blocks from a Quilting Friend in WI.  I added the borders .   This quilt finished up at 46 inches square.

The second quilt top finished this weekend was made from blocks made as a result of a challenge that I had made on Sunshine.   These were from Ann D.  The plaid fabric used for the offset blocks was one given to me several years ago by a quilting friend who has since passed away.  

I'm still debating if I want to put a final border onto the quilt using the plaid fabric or not.    Right now it is 41 inches wide by 52 inches long and that  is plenty big for Sunshine quilts, but I can't decide if it looks finished this way or really needs a final border.  

And if I do add a final border then what do I make it out of - more of the plaid fabric or a solid?  

What say you - border or no border?

1. Registration for Drivers Education Instructor Training is finally complete

2. Two of the three courses for DE training will be free me because I'm a dual credit instructor - God's provision is always perfect in timing.

Definitely, no border needs to be added. I assume there will be binding which will be the frame. If finished with out binding (pillow case edge) then add a small (2 inch or so) border of the plaid.

I agree a binding will frame it. Maybe make it wider than normal.
