Love your fabrics! I agree with Toverly that there's no need for a wide border of any kind and I would go with the orange binding unless you have some of the black/white stripey fabric.

It would look great with or without a border. For a border, I like the dark magenta because it is similar to, but not exactly the same as the magenta that is already in the quilt so it blends with them and also works well with the orange and it contrasts nicely with the teals and greens.

I agree with the no border needed idea. Binding could be orange or one of the darkest colors. Looks black/dark purple.

I love the grey in the first pic for a calming influence or the raspberry color in the second f you want to go bright all the way to the edge. For binding if you go grey I'd use one of the very dark colors like the purple. If you go raspberry, I'd bind with the yellow.

I think it stands on its own with out a boarder. It is beautiful and the colors in it speak for themselves.
