Boxed Stripes 3

It's quilted and assembled and now I have to decide if it is big enough, or needs a border? At this point it measures 53x58.5".
If I piece a border, I am thinking ten inches all around making it 73x78". Still not big enough to cover a bed, but big enough to cover a body for a nap. But if I think of it as an art quilt for the wall, then this size is definitely big enough. What do you think?
Here's a detail of the quilting and the narrow connector strips. Click twice for a really close look.
I quilted it in four pieces, with a walking foot, and then trimmed and connected the panels with QAYG narrow connector strips. Each panel took about an hour, with breaks to pet the dawgs, and feed the fish. I fooled around most of the weekend, so the majority of the quilting was done today. It seemed like a good workday.

  1. Oh Melody, this is LOVELY! Those little stripey connector strips are the bomb...I think a fun multicolor binding would look awesome (like anonymous up above!)

  2. It looks amazing, it would be great if yu could find a stripe that incorporates all your colours and maybe put in a solid that you used in your blocks every now and then to carry through the illusion of your pieced blocks.

    Now the decision, nap or wall hanging!

  3. It's borders.
    It is perfect this way.

  4. I think it's great either way. I like quilts I can though. It's funny how a problem often leads to a happy solution. I love the affect of the narrow block borders with the small striped strips on the outside.

  5. Love it! And I love those little connector strips!

  6. I vote for leaving the quilt as is. It's just perfect--at least to my eye. In fact I love these colors so much that I am using them as inspiration for an applique quilt I have begun. You never cease to amaze me.

    I think it is finished. Wouldn't it look great hanging on the wall of a sunny beach house?
