The Windows Quilt



This quilt top is finished, I think.
I can't decide if I should add a border or two to it.
Right now it measures 72 inches wide by 84 inches long.
It is made with my never ending supply of Denyse Schmidt fabric scraps and Michael Miller Cotton Couture in Indigo.
What I thought would be a leaders and enders project turned into a full on, must finish project.
After making one block I was so excited to finish this quilt that I just kept on sewing for days until it was completed.
I'll ponder on it a while to decide on backing and how I will quilt it.
Meanwhile, I need to decide whether to add borders or not.
Suggestions are gladly welcome.
Linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced for Work in Progress Wednesday.

I would not add borders and if you want it bigger I would add more blocks, but then I am not fond of borders. It's looking great.

I like it just as is!

I love your choice of the indigo for this project. It really makes all the other fabrics pop! Whether or not to add borders would be a practical/functional decision for me. Will it be a bed quilt that might want/need to be a bit longer and bit wider? That's why I added plain borders to this sampler quilt: https://flic.kr/p/pY9jyB

I love it! I can see how you could get excited and rush to finish. It's awesome!

Love this, Di. I think it would look good either way (with or without borders). Maybe a pieced border?

With or without borders, your quilt is gorgeous!

I vote for no borders! Keep it looking just the way it does now :)

What a great leader/ender project. I love that quilt! Personally I like the look without borders, but I am sure it would look great with a border as well. How big are the colored squares?

I really really like this quilt top! I'd say no borders - it looks super as it is! Or if you do want it bigger, why not just a trip of indigo on all sides?
