    This is a quilt top I'm making for a long-time co-worker (male) who is moving. I just want a throw-size so don't want a huge border. I can't decide. I'm thinking 1" black border to frame it - and a black binding with something in between. Suggestions appreciated.

    I may be odd, but I would try a deep dark brown and see how it looks rather than the black.

    Now that I see the pics, I'm thinking a dark brown would be better, too. I did try to find one, but no luck at JoAnns, I'll need to go to another store, I guess.
    I added option #6....not sure if it's TOO much border, though.

    Option #1, don't care for 6, not enough contrast

    I vote for option #1. As a second choice, I would go with #4. Look forward to seeing it when it's finished!

    I don't care for that black, either. A dark brown to go with what is already there. Or the dark brown squares that you had.

    Although I like all your concepts, I like the option #1. It compliments the center and does not take away from it.

    My favourite is #4 - I like how the dark browns frame the inner quilt.
