Needing advice

Here is my work on the Challenge so far, and it has been challenging!  I already posted a photo of this quilt top.  Now I have added borders--so what did I do?  I decided to do what Gee's Bend quilting ladies might do, and I added strips of fabric that were left over from making the backs of some previous quilts.  I always cut a generous backing, and there is often a strip left over after I trim when adding the bindings.  What the photo shows--I spread the quilt top on my bed, so please disregard the yellow edges, that's simply the background quilt.  My questions are:  Is this enough?  What does the quilt need, within the requirements of the challenge?

whee, you did great just adding more on. you've got to listen to what the quilt is telling you to do - you've more than met the challenge! Is it finished or does it want more?
