Welcome to the Quilting Board!
IF you border, try the orange. But I honestly like both ways. What will it be when finished? Maybe your answer will tell you which way to go.
I agree with Sunnye... depending on how it's used once you've finished might factor into your decision.
Kind of like the green for a border around the star. OR, can your border be made like the strips at the top & bottom (minus the pink)? Sometimes I place different color fabrics around the quilt... then leave it for a while and come back to see which color strikes my fancy. Let us know what you decide.
**Krista, we were posting at the same time. I too prefer the border.

I like picture number one with the olive green
Actually, I lean towards the floating star, but the other is stunning too.
Float it and save your hard-earned points! IF you decide to frame it, leave at least 2 inches of float and then frame it. Much more eye-appealing in general.

I really like your quilt and the green border works great.
EDIT: I really like the idea from JAN about floating the star a little before the border. Nice thought!

I like it floating on the dark background. Reminds me of a star in the night sky.
