My first D9P - any ideas for the border?

Throughout the years I've made many quilts and blocks the 'old fashioned' way, before rotary cutters and quilting rulers, so it was fun to see blocks form so quickly using the Disappearing 9-Patch, which I actually learned reading this Board.
This top is about 64" x 84"; the black border is 2-1/2". Should I add one more wider border?
Thanks for looking!

I think you should!! But I like double and triple borders...seems to finish them off. How about a thin (1" in the creams and then a wider in the red/orange colors? This quilt you've done is BEAUTIFUL!!!! Good job! :thumbup: :thumbup:

Love the colors, and yes, more borders to accent the quilt blocks

I'm on my 1st DP9 right now. I also am stuck on the border, after looking at yours I may try a border similar to yours. I actually like it the way it is, however I think it would also look good with a second border. :):):)

I would add another border a little wider than the black. It's just my opinion.
