Default Bizz Buzz Border?

This quilt top is finished. Do you think it needs a border, and if so, what color? Binding color suggestions also welcome.

Here are some solid and tonal choices I have . Never mind the width, just messing with colors.

I'm sorry. I'm having trouble resizing my photo of the whole, unbordered quilt. Can you see the two photos above that have audition borders on them?

Do you mean the deep purple in the first picture or the magenta in the second?

Also, the color that looks navy in the picture is dk teal in real life.

I have the black or real dark popping out, that is what I'd use. I love all the colors. They don't need them in the border. It is the frame and I love the quilt. Just my useless opinion. LOL

Your potential border fabrics are all good choices. Personally, I like the magenta or the yellow in the second photo. Great top!

Iím only going to use one color if I do border. The darkest color you see is not black but deep purple

No border needed. I would just bind in the dark grey or sage green. If you want it to pop go with the orange or yellow.
