Did I hear "Stop!"

I'm having a design conundrum. My husband has weighed in on the decision, now let's see what the general consensus is. I'm willing to wait because I'm too tired to sew anymore today anyway!

Here's the smaller of the two quilts I started yesterday (the larger is pieced, but I haven't hung it to photograph yet). On the top/left is one border option, on the bottom/right is the other option. The question is - do I add the two other borders or call it quits? Husband votes for the second option, and it is nice that way (and complete, I might add!), but it's also small - 30" x 36". If I add the other borders it's 38" x 44", which is a more useful size for a baby quilt.

Ooh, ooh - I just had another idea - how stupid am I not to see this? What if the outer yellow border was the same width as the inner one?


I just changed it on the design wall. Perfect!

Add the borders!

I am not a border gal, but in this case, I would add them! (I would use the yellow for the binding - BTW)

Well, this is just my two cents, I say leave the borders off. I like it either way but I like it without the borders better...hugs, Linda

I like the borders--top left and I like the idea of yellow binding too.
