Last Round??

I have added another round to 'finish' the effect. Now I am trying to decide whether to add a frame or border.. Opinions??

If I dont add further to the quilt, it will be a lap quilt really, as it is not very large.
I had ideas of quilting it as I went, but that went out the window once I started adding the sashings.
I am pleased with the brightness of it, & thank Joyce for the idea, & the cutting sizes.

I have tried to add word verification again, to see if that would allow comments, which are currently being blocked.

Blogger has been very frustrating this morning. I cant seem to get anything I want done, to happen. Grrr.

The day is deteriorating, & it is getting humid & cloudy.

I love the colors in your quilt and the brightness of the sashings. Great job, Meggie. I would add a border (an this coming from a border-phobic).

Honey and Leo are soooo cute. Don't you just love those squeaking toys? (Rolling eyes)

Lovely bright top - the overall effect is like plaid - for that reason I probably wouldn't add a border.

I always like borders on quilts especially if they are on the small size but with this one it's hard to say what kind of border. I like the way you did the sashing. I bought some gray for my sashing but haven't had time to try it because the chickens are taking up the design wall.

Very pretty. I think it would look good with a border too.

How delightfully bright and happy! I like your continuation of the checkerboard with the sashings. As for a border, how about extending the checkerboard pattern with just black and white squares around the four sides, then maybe adding a black border to contain it all?

This is lovely, Meggie! Makes me happy looking at it :o) I'm not quite sure how you define border vs. frame, but anyway I wouldn't ad anything to busy. Nellie's idea of extending the checkerboard and add a black (or maybe green) border to finish, sounds good to me :o)

Love it just the way it is. If you want it bigger than add more borders.

I too am border-phobic so I have no ideas for you.

Honey and Leo are very cute. My dogs love squeaky toys and squeak for hours on end. The squeaker only last for a few days and then I take it out.

Oh Meggie, I just sit here and laugh out loud at some of your posts...the last one about the mechanic was just hiliarious...the the comment about the coffee...ROFL Honey and Leo are just too cute! And I love your quilt the way it is right now. IMHO, all I think it needs is to be quilted and add some binding.

I wish you were here to go to the quilt show with us, too, Meggie! It would be a blast!

I don't know what a sashing is, I do know what a border is, but I have no way of advising you. I just like what I see, the way it is.

Very colourful, very bright and happy. Lovely.

Thank you all very much for your kind input! I am thinking I will just leave it at that for the quilt, as it doesn't seem to need anything else. I will probably bind it with black. I ran out of the original black fabric, & didnt want to buy more, so I have used Homespun & in the photo, -& in real life- it doesnt stand out as odd.
But now I have to decide how to quilt it.....
