Due to the weather, I stayed in and finished the Rubiks crush top. Now, I have to decide, Does it need a border? The blocks are 12" each. What do you think?

I love piecing the scrap blocks on my treadle. I have been making the 6.5" blocks. I was thinking of trying something else. I found a quarter log cabin bento box type online, filminthefridge.com and tried it yesterday with my scraps. I was going to make them each 8.5" and they are not there yet. All sewn on the 100 yr old treadle without a blip. What about a whole quilt with them? Three 16" complete blocks across? Four blocks down would be 64", and three blocks acrosswould be 48". I usually try to keep lap quilts under 60" for batting size sake, as I split a king batt into four. Or should I make it four by four? Is a square lap quilt 64 X 64 manageable?
Not yet the full 8.5" each
Another block I like is the wonky cross. I saw this on a number of sites, sewmamasew, being one of them. I bought some batik layer cakes from Connecting Threads at the end of the year that these would be perfect for I think. I made a sample to see how it sewed. I think I would make the cross arms thinner. Have to think about this for a lap quilt. Anyone made this?
