Here is the Hunter's star layout, before it was completely put together. I like the balance.
The blocks finish at 8", so as is, this measures 32 x 40. Question: Is that big enough for a baby quilt? I tend to make mine a little larger. I'd feel better if this were 40 x 48, but I am not going to make 10 more blocks. (Next time I'll know to make it a 5 x 6 setting.) I had originally thought to put borders on it - a narrow border with a wider border to finish at 4" all the way around. Something like the upper right in this picture:
However, DH preferred the quilt top without any borders. His thought was that borders detracted from the center instead of showcasing the center. He did not like the borders at all. What do you think?
A: Leave it as is at 32 x 40 (the binding will be turquoise).
B: Add borders as in the picture?
C: Make the last border a brown solid or the dark rust (like a picture frame) instead of the print?
