    Beautiful quilt. I would make a small border with a similar medium or dark blue fabric, maybe using something used in the quilt if you have enough fabric. Then have a very small folded fabric or corded accent border of yellow, then followed with your flowered blue fabric for the outer border.

    I would also use this same flowered fabric for the binding ic you have enough. If not then maybe make the binding out of scraps of all of the fabrics used in the quilt top.

    It would appear from the picture that all the fabrics you have used so far are prints. With this in mind I would stay away from using a solid but use another print

    Hope this makes sense to others.

    The border fabric you are showing looks perfect with the quilt. If you need the quilt to be even bigger, you could first add a narrow border of the yellow or a darker blue, and then the blue floral.

    I agree with Kas - a small yellow flange and that print fabric would be great.

    I totally agree skinny yellow inner border and use the outer border you are showing. It will be beautiful.

    I agree with KAS I would use the blue as an outer border and have a narrow inner border of yellow.

    Really pretty! Love the blue/white/yellow combination. That always looks Springy and bright! Great job and inspiration to me! I really like the flowered border you have in the second picture. Looks really nice and pulls it all together.

    I agree, the yellow inner border and larger print outer border would look really good.
