My first vote is for a double border, but if you do just one then yellow wins.

I agree , the double border would be my first choice. Using both colors gives a more blended look that does not over power the blocks. I would use the yellow for the border closest to the blocks, then the blue.

I like the idea of the double border too. I must say I love this quilt.

Just exactly what I was thinking when I saw the pictures! The eye draws all the colors outward with the yellow included in the border.

I love the dark one too. Maybe a narrow yellow, & then the dark wide border.

All colours. Can you remember that baby quilt and the quilter had made the corners by using the fan shapes and having pointed side out. Will see if I can find thread or if someone else remembers it was beautiful.
