I posted another pic under "update which would you choose". I chose the navy piping. Thanks for all your comments and suggestions.

I like the beige piping on the inner piping border and navy for the outer piping border. Very nice quilt!

I'm in the minority here. I like it without the piping. With just the print, it makes the rest of the quilt float.

Both beautiful options. What about trying the beige piping, and then an extra wide (1") navy binding?

My choice: navy piping. The red is nice, but has no anchor to the quilt...if some of the elements of the quilt were red, it would work. Stick with the navy.

I also prefer the beige piping... it seems to need that third fabric. It also sets the border off from the body of the quilt better.
