Everyone's idea is great. I think that a thin strip of white, then red & finish it with a wider border of a similar small print that you have used in the quilt top itself. Then bind it in red.

Good Luck,
Cheryl

Yes, that is what I was thinking too..

Small white or red, then use some of that rose print that is in the quilt for the wide outer border and bind in red...

lay it out on the floor and see if it speaks to you...

OK, ladies, thank you for your input! You helped a lot! What I wound up doing was a white 1-1/2" border, then a 1/2' red plaid, then a 6" border of my favorite print from the quilt, the large red floral on white. Then when I'm done quilting I'll bind it with one of the red prints from the quilt. Here's what it looks lilke (sorry the last photo is so fuzzy):
