Default I am still working on my appliqué 'Garden Quilt'

this is on going project, has been put aside for months now. It is inspired by my own garden.
In order to fit queen size bed I would like to add another border, at least 5 inches wide. So far I am not coming with any ideas. Should I make another appliqué border or look for a fabric with flowers on it? or just plain white?
any suggestions, please?

You might search for a floral border with the primary colors you used??

I'd find a floral print with colors you want. It will help the project go quicker too~

Solid strips of the yellow and center color checks. Not sure what the center color check is.

Do you have more of the gray/blue checked print in the first border? If so, I'd frame it with a narrow, solid white border first, then add a wide border of the checked print. Would bring the eye out from the center of the quilt, without stealing the thunder from all the pretty applique. Then I would bind it with the same checked fabric and it would look almost like a dust ruffle.
