    I honestly have no clue! This is for my youngest son as he loves to make movies. I'm stumped on what color I should use though. The pattern calls for a 6 1/2 inch border all the way around.. The backing will be denim as he wanted that "heavy" feeling..
    but the border...????? I'm not sure..any ideas?

    I personally would like it as is! If you want a border use one of the brights you have in your squares than bind it in black. Just my thoughts! :-D

    It's a beautiful quilt. I would pick the color in the center or the red block as the border. I also agree that you should bind it in black.

    Nice Job!!!! :thumbup:

    You've got so many colors in the quilt that any bright border would be fine. Personally, I'd just look at what I had in my stash with enough yardage and go for it.

    I like it as is but if you want a theme maybe the black and white like the ppl use int the movies to start a new scene. I can't think of what the darn thing is called. Sorry.

    Stunning Quilt!!! :D:D:D
    Maybe a 2 inch in one of the darker colors and a 4 inch black. Bind it with another darker color?
    I don't think I would use too light a colors, it may be too busy?

    Any color will do, but the brights seem to stand out more. I would say whatever you choose that makes the complementing squares "pop"

    I love the filmstrip look, maybe a 4-6 inch version in black and white.

    I would just bind it in black and leave it at that. I love this quilt.
