A Finished Flimsy?

Is it a finished flimsy?
Sweet Odin has kept me pretty occupied over the past couple weeks but he went home last night for a few days and I feel that I have absolutely earned some uninterrupted sewing time. 😀

This morning I started right in working on this quilt top but I didn't get to start with sewing. 😖 In my last post I said I needed to add another row to the top of the quilt but that was sooo wrong. What I really needed to do was to remove the last row on the bottom of the quilt so that the border would work out properly.

Anyway, I got that done and finished sewing the border pieces together and then added them around the quilt. Once I did that I noticed that some of the string blocks were starting to split their seams from tugging on it while pushing it through the machine so I immediately stay stitched around the whole quilt.

I really like this quilt as is but I'm not sure if it is calling for another border of some sort or not. I have to think about it for a while. It is going to join a whole bunch of finished flimsies in my to-be-quilted pile so it has time to age and I have time to decide. It is currently 60" x 76" which is big enough for a couch quilt so we will see.

I saw this quilt on Bonnie Hunter's blog here and I loved it at first sight. I have mentioned this previously but she has stated that she does not have a pattern for it and does not plan to create one.

Happily, I have coerced my husband into making dinner tonight and maybe even the next couple nights so that I can really take advantage of the free time I'm going to have over the next couple days before Odin returns. 

He really is a very good and lovable puppy - its just that he is so very high energy and I honestly can't get over how smart he is. He has been housebroken since he was 8 weeks old and he knows how to ask to go out. He has not had any accidents....unbelievable!

Odin is a very lovely pup. Your flimsy is awesome. Sleep on it. I know the answer to adding borders or not will come to you. ;^)
