Default Dresden Plate Border choice

I can't decide which border fabric to use for this lap quilt that I made out of bandana fabric. What do you guys think?

Thanks for all your help.

I like the dark one better, but I like the yellow too. How would it look with a yellow border around the white - maybe twice as wide as the red border - and then the dark?

I think it needs the double border also. It's got a lot going on in the body of the quilt top so I think the border needs to be more than just one plain old border.

Yellow is a very strong color but the print does match the plates. The dark navy is more gender neutral. I think it would depend on who the quilt is for. Personally I like the navy.
