    Maybe you can do the lighter tan a thin 2" boarder and then maybe use some of the scrappy squares as the final boarder to finish it off? That is what I see when I look at it :)

    I think Jade's idea is what I would do. By the way, it's a beauty!

    Bring in some orange or red for borders, then you can pull in the tan.

    It's worth finishing, so whatever you choose, it will be great! I agree with what everyone else has been saying.

    I suggest a scrappy border. Piano keys border? Or flying geese? Bring out more color rather then trying to match (which you'll never get right).
