I think I would like about a half inch black border around the main part and then the gold border.

The snakeskin puts more contrast against the sashing.

Snake skin all the way! It looks like a giant snake circling the quilt.

I like the snakeskin best. It has more contrast with the sashing and sets off the main part of the quilt better.

I would try a narrow border of the lighter color, then a wider border of the darker #1

I think the giraffe print is in keeping with the other mammal prints. The snake is a reptile print. If you are working a theme here I would stay with the furry animal prints and not the reptile print.

A very nice quilt you have there.

EDIT: I like bears idea of going with a narrow black border and then the giraffe. Very nice.
peace

the black and white snakeskin does look the best but man, do I hate snakes! Don't you have enough of the black/white animal prints you could use instead?
