Default Expertise needed

I have finally finished this curved log cabin and was thinking of adding a small border in the same color as the background fabric......what say the experts?? I have looked at this so long my brain can no longer decide what would look best, thus I turn to the wise world that is QB.

Yes, I think a small white border would look very good.

Narrow white border. Love, love, love your quilt! Log cabin is always my go-to pattern.

I'm fond of 3 borders. Maybe the dark blue 1 -2" with that yellow 3 1/2" and finished with one of the pinks/reds at 5". Love the quilt.

I agree with QuiltnNan. A light strip all around and then a piano key border with all the fabric in the quilt, great top!
