HI Everyone,

I have hand quilted two borders around my quilt.  There is a 5" gap between the two borders.  The Middle part of the quilt is more densely quilted without too much spacing.  Is this 5" gap okay or do I need to quilt something in the middle of the two borders.  And, if so any suggestions as my quilt is finished and difficult to mark now.

thank you!!!

I think you should put a bit of quilting in that space. Just a simple scroll or meander would be fine. Nothing heavy.
