    I would suggest pining up sections of the fabric you are thinking of using for borders, preferably on a corner. Leave it on your design wall for a few days or longer. Look at it at different times of the day, before you decide what to do.

    OMG, you are a new quilter? You are awfully brave, but it's beautiful! I'll leave answering your question to others.

    I cannot imagine the time and patience needed to make this lovely quilt. That is a grand prize winner for sure.

    That is a fantastic quilt. I'd keep the added borders simple so your center is the stand-out.
    I don't know how to do that.....YET!

    I feel less is more with the borders. I'd add very narrow sashing maybe 1.5" of one of the darker colors then 3" or so of your black followed by one more round of a lighter color in slightly wider width possibly 2.5" then a final round of black in whatever width you need to cover your mattress. and would bind in black also. Nothing could be easier than that, but to my eye, anything more risks distracting from that jaw-dropping, spectacular center! maybe even just one sashing strip would do it. if you lay it out on your bed, you can see where the art ends in relation to the drop of your bed and that might determine whether you want one or two inner sashing strips.
