Just finished the top yesterday. Now I need ideas for the border. Since it's so busy I believe a tone on tone would be better but I'm not sure about what colors to use. I'm thinking maybe a beige with red or black binding. Any suggestions?

The black and red would really make it pop. Fun quilt.

Love the fabrics in this fabulous quilt! Black with a red binding is what comes to my thoughts. Hope you share another picture when you complete it. Thanks for sharing.

It needs a narrow black border to contain all that color, then the wider border of your choice. I like the red, tan, black or brown prints in the quilt.
