    I like it both ways. Do you already have the binding cut from the green? If not I would add the gold and bind it in the same gold. Whatever you choose it will be gorgeous.

    Both look great -- it depends on how large you want the quilt and what color you want the quilt to show most.

    If it were my quilt, I wouldn't add the gold border.
    When I opened the thread and just saw the first picture, my eyes went immediately to all of your blocks.
    The green border really framed them nicely and made them the focus of the top. POP!

    When I scrolled down and the 2nd picture came in view, ALL I saw was that gold border.
    Totally stole the limelight from the blocks.

    But that's just me.

    I agree and was going to post something similar. The first picture with the green border showed a beautiful green quilt and your blocks stood out.
    The second photo turned it into a gold quilt and the sashing became the prominent feature, and you lost the blocks.

    Quite honestly if you are set on a larger size, I would pull one of darker colours from your blocks for a second border, but it really doesn't need it. Just the green is perfect.

    I like the gold border. It seems to stand out more. Just my humble opinion.
    so many quilts to make, so little time.

    I prefer just the green border as my eye goes to your blocks. I found the added gold border was too shocking and bright for my taste and all I saw was gold and not your nice blocks.

    Very pretty. LOVE the colors. I like the green for the border without the gold.
