Yes to the double border! It really finishes it off.

Thanks, everyone. I can't tell you many times I have switched back and forth with this. You have been very helpful.

I like your border sample. The border looks better to me, but either would look great.

I absolutely Love your border fabric, so if it were me I would choose the bordered quilt, but no borders is the more modern esthetic so if that is the look you want to achieve, no borders it is. LOVE your fabric choices and pattern!
