    I love the idea of sashing - how about repeating the inner square on the edges in reds? A curling ribbon would look great, but I would keep it to black and white. JMHO :)

    A plain one, which does not compete with the optical tricks you blocks are playing. They really dance.

    I agree. Do you have more blocks? If not, how about making it 4 blocks square & the leftover on the back? love it & happy quilting!

    It's bold and beautiful. I think a red border would draw my eye away from your wonderful pieced blocks. I'd use either no border at all, or a small black border. If you'd like to pull the red color, then maybe use red as binding.

    I would stick with the black/white theme and use a black border, not solid but with a very small print so that it appears black from a distance but with enough print to add interest.
    Then bind with a solid black.

    I see a bit of red in some of the blocks so I would use a red for one of the borders with a black outer border.

    A splash of color would be nice. Red/Yellow or Hot Pink, even a bright lime green. Whatever you choose, it wil be beautiful!
