I took your advice and added not one but two borders! The quilt finished at 70x85". I like the way the red frames the quilt center before it hits the green. A nice finish to celebrate National Quilting Day. Hope you are celebrating with some quilting time. A very windy Minnesota day makes outdoor photography a challenge, but you get the idea of how the borders look. I thought my quilt holder might blow away cause the quilt was wanting to catch the wind like a sail and you know that Tom is a lightweight now so I had to take a quick shot before he blew away! :-D

The first Quilt Minnesota Shophop took place in August of 2007. I purchased this MN themed fabric while touring participating quilt shops. More than two years later I got the bug to piece this quilt top.
Does this quilt need a border?
The green fabric tacked on in the above photo is intended to be the border. I could add a border, but I'm not sure it needs one. A border would make the top larger, but not make a big difference in how it will be used. Any thoughts on this?
This post is for Carol. She's been feeling a bit lonesome for some of her blogger friends who haven't been posting much lately. I've been too busy sewing and last week the weather was so warm and sunny that I had to be outside, so no posting. The robins are back! We've had rain and the snow is slowly melting away. :-D
