Lightbulb HST - Border or not?

Hi All
I Finally got my Scrappy HST top assembled. It is about 44 x 54.
I intend it to be a lap robe. But need some advice on Borders.

1. No border
2. Single lite border
3. Single dark border
4. Double lite (narrow inner) / dark border (wider outer)

I'm the opposite of Gale. I almost always like a border. So now it seems you can do whatever you like. If it were mine, I'd make a thin dark inner border and wider light outer border.

I am also in the border camp. I think it needs dark to frame the quilt.

It's great. I would go with a light inner border, and a darker one on the outside.

I vote for a border -- I would probably do a light inner border (narrow) and a wider, dark outer border. Love the look of the HST's

It doesn't need one but a light inner/dark outer border would frame the luscious HSTs.
