    Love the bright colors. The blocks look like jewels!

    Small black tone on tone border would be nice.

    BEAUTIFUL is all I can say the colors are gorgeous and I also would use a black border.

    IMHO, I think a simple black border would be perfect. Let the blocks shine!

    Your quilt is beautiful and I love the vivid colors. I agree with those on a black border followed by a border using some of your colors from the blocks.

    It is strange, I make string quilts and they all seem to be quite bright and no matter what outer border I use it still seems to need a final bright scrappy border.

    Audition some of the great suggestions here and go with the one you like best.
