I'd go with the yellow or the red, it compliments the black in the body of the quilt. The black would just blue the lines and it would look like a lot of blank spaces.

Have you considered two borders, a one inch border and then a second wider border. Use the brighter of the fabric you chose for the one inch.

It is looking great so far.

I like this idea of the BRIGHT small next to the main (make it POP), then a larger for the last/outer border.

Also, is this for a child, or maybe a grown up firefighter? If for a child, I'd make it as bright as you can. If an adult, a little more sophisticated maybe

Good luck - be sure & show us your finished project.

Either would look nice, but I think the red (it looks more maroon in the pic??)

But final decision should be what YOU like or think the firefighter might like :lol: :thumbup:
