    Great job! Definitely a black border. You could piece six inch strips of the various batiks and make a multi-colored inner border. It would be a lot of work but nice.

    Gorgeous! If you want a border, I agree with the black, or a narrow black inner border & your favorite of one of the other fabrics.

    I'd go with black for the border to pull that color out.

    Definitely does not require a border unless you need it bigger. I vote for something in black though with maybe some other color mixed in with it....you know how they do these batiks.

    I vote no binding. Black binding will finish it off nicely. This looks similar to the Turning Twenty batik quilt top I made. It is in my ufo pile. I need to quilt it.

    I'm not up for reading all the responses this morning, but it's a BEAUTIFUL quilt, and one that really doesn't even need a border, unless you feel it needs to be bigger. I think sometimes it's good to just "leave well enough alone" as my dear Mother used to say!

    its modern and fresh. i think i would eliminate the border completely and just possibly use a black or a dark blue for the binding?

    Do you have a particular person or bedroom in mind? If you do, I think I'd use a batik the color that best suits that person or room. OTH, if you could find yardage in a similar black batik, that would always work. OR maybe just construct a band of left over batiks for the outer border.

    LOVE your quilt colors, fabric and the pattern you chose. Batik is my fabric of choice.

    I love it! I don't know about adding a border. I might just bind it in black and call it beautifully done.

    Very nice, I was thinking a black border with a small ribbon of orange near the top or bottom third of the black.

    Do you need this to be larger? If so, I think a black border would finish it off nicely. It wouldn't even need to be the same black Batik as you have in the squares. Maybe add a skinny flange or piping with short sections of all the fabrics used in the top, placed right next to the binding.

    Love your quilt. I like the idea of a black border as well.
