    Gorgeous quilt! A braid of all colors in the quilt would be striking, could still use a strip of dark or white on the outer border to trim. Those stars just jump off the quilt at you!

    I think I'd do a dark border.
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    I like the last picture where you extend the color so that the blocks float in the center of the quilt. Then I would bind with the same color as the sashing if you have it or one of the draker colors to finish off the edge. Good luck and best stitches

    Such a beautiful quilt............... I would put a thin dark border and then the braid using all the colors encased in the cream color.

    It's gorgeous!! I like the 2 blues you have for the border. A thin one in the lighter blue and a little thicker in the darker blue. It will bring out more of the blue in the quilt in my opinion.
