    I really like the gold border. It would also make the quilt larger, more useful if you want it to be a lap quilt. But if you want to make it a wall quilt (and it's certainly pretty enough to go on the wall), smaller might be better.

    Wow! It's beautiful either way, but I like the idea of just the green with a gold binding.

    Unless you are wanting the quilt larger, I would not add the gold border. Personally, I always prefer a darker border...kind of like the frame on a picture. Your quilt though, so whatever you prefer is what really counts.

    I like the outside gold border, but then I would also bind it in the last border colour as well. It is a beautiful quilt top.

    I like the gold... it seems to brighten/warm up the quilt. I have a hard time with deciding borders too... good idea to post pics, get some input and then let it sit for awhile. I almost always lay out my blocks, rearrange, then let them rest at least overnight. My DD used to be a great help as she has an eye for color but now she's away at college.

    Very pretty quilt!
    I think the gold border makes the gold sashing stand out, whereas the green border makes the blocks stand out. I would bind it to match whatever you choose for the last border.
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    That's very interesting. I will have to remember it in the future when planning borders.

    I like the green better. Maybe because I'm partial to green.
