If you need a border, I like Dina's idea ... yellow border w/darker gray binding. If you don't need a border, just bind w/darker gray. Beautiful fabrics btw.

First of all-your top is beautiful. You could do a small inner border of the yellow and maybe a piano key border to make the quilt bigger if you like. Not sure of what color of binding to use. Will leave that answer up to the other QB members that are much better than I am on that.

I would do a thin inner border with the dark gray and then one of the larger prints for the next border. Gray for binding.

I would do a 1 " solid yellow to frame and then use 4 or 5" charcoal gray medium print and bind in black.

Your quilt is very beautiful. If you put a boarder I would make its either plain yellow or the gray.

The gray if you're going to do a border but I agree that it doesn't need one.

I just did a quilt with about three of the same fabrics you have there

I wouldn't piece a border for this pretty but very busy quilt. I would find a bright solid yellow or a strip for your inside border and then use the gray as your outside border. Maybe use the scraps in your binding.
