    Love it! I would use the border on the left - the blocks with the black in between. You did a great job.

    you could add 2 borders make the first border not as wide as the second. I would would use you bright blue for outside border and a med blue or green for inside border and then bind it in black It is a very pretty Quilt !!
    but dont forget to also one of borders you R trying I like the first one With the positive squares and the negative is it a strip or rectangle. good luck

    Lovely quilt.
    Colors are wonderful. Think I would check to see how a quarter inch color around the quilt, then use the black for a wide border and use a color to bind.

    I like the small squares in the black for the border. Your quilt is very dramatic and striking. Well done!

    Fantabulous!! This baby is awesome. It is so nice to see someone that is not afraid to use brights. I would go with the border on the left just to break up the color blocks. Great job!!

    I love this quilt. The black sure makes the colors pop. I like the border on the left, the one with mostly black with colored squares.

    Of the two trial borders, I like the first one best with the black between the colors.

    Awesome quilt. Great job.

    Obviously the overall vote is for the black border with the little 2 inch squares. It really sets off your work. I do not like the log cabin border---it is just a repeat of the quilt.
    Many people did not scroll down low enough to see your border sample.
    You work is stunning!!
