This is just the finished top -- I hope we don't have to put 100% finished projects in the gallery! There are over 60 different pink fabrics in this quilt, all set against navy blue; as you can see, the half-square triangles are directional, which I think gives the quilt quite an interesting visual quality. Does it need a border, though??

The photo is the best I could do for now. One day I'll have enough room for a design wall...

OMG!! How long did it take to piece all of that!! Geepers, you sure don't lack ambition, Girl! It's wonderful!!

"Does it need borders?" That would depend. I think it looks very 'period' (1890ish)  without them, but the might serve as a nice frame and calm the busy energy all those happy little triangles create. It's a tough call.

I think I like it without a border.  The many triangles actually have a very unified look.  Without a border, I might be more inclined to look at the many beautiful pink fabrics.  Wonderful quilt!

Love it! My first quilt class at Sisters, OR, was Lady of the Lake, and I still love half sq. triangles and scrappy quilts.

Oh my goodness.  there must be a gazillion triangles in your quilt!  Stunning.  I think a border would be a nice addition to it.
