    Just pieced this together, and am having a tough time deciding what color(s) to use for a border. This is my first large quilt, and I used a lot of differnet scraps that I have from smaller projects. Black has been thrown around a lot. Would like some opinions from those who quilt a lot more often than me! I appreciate any and all feedback

    Is there a particular one of the colors that you would like to emphasize? If so I would do a narrow border of the black and a wider border of your emphasis color.

    You've already got it figured out!!!

    There's no need for a border ... just go straight from what you have done and do a black binding, as you have shown.

    I would do a narrow black border and then a wider border using one of the other colors of the quilt (I love the blue).
