I think atleast a thin solid border first, then you could use that. :-D

I agree, a small border first. Preferably dark so quilt and outer border will stand out.

If I do only one border, I'd probably do a 2" border of this. I'm trying to get this finished with the material I have on hand instead of buying more.

BUT!!! I just remembered I have a ton extra of the fabric I'll probably use for the backing. Lemme snap some pics!
