    Whatever your dark color in the blocks is- that's what the border should be. It could be a little one to make it pop or a larger one- you would have to audition to see, but definitely the dark color.

    something dark and solid maybe to give your eyes a rest? or a cream color for a less bold look might be better. either way it is fantastic!

    It came oh great! I would think a dark red or black border.

    I'd do a fairly narrow border of the gold (?) fabric just to finish it. It wouldn't take away from the wonderful quilt top, but just complete it. Lovely!

    That is such a beautiful quilt. I love the way it looks right now. Not sure if I would add any borders. Great job!

    I really like your colour choices. I vote for blue, but not too wide, then possibly bind it in one of the reds from the quilt. I'm jealous you are finished. I'm still working on steps 3 and 4.
