Default Cottage Romance - Borders or no borders?

Sorry for such poor pictures but if you can use your imagination please. Should I border this quilt or just put a binding on and call it finished? I am really undecided and would really like your opinions.
This quilt top really is straight but I guess it is not pinned on the wall very well.

I would add a border, but I add borders 99% of the time. I think it's rare that a border doesn't enhance a quilt.

I would make 2 borders- a thin green one and then the rose on in the 3rd pic. I love this fabric line!

I think adding a little green boarder first then the other flower one would be beautiful

I like the look of that fabric you have up for the border and use the green for the binding. Very pretty!

I also vote for a thinner green border then add the flowered fabric for the outer border. I love your fabrics.

Yes for the border. Love the idea of a thin green border and then the border shown would tie the whole quilt together beautifully!
