Default Quilt in progress

Fresh from the "design floor". Working on this quilt for my son. Any suggestions for colors for the borders? (The blue sheet behind just lets me roll this up and take it to my sewing machine. Yup, someday I need a large design wall!)

I think green ... or perhaps gold.

A narrow dark border followed by a print with the quilt colors. I see a dark paisley.

A small green border and then a larger red border would look good, great looking quilt, can’t wait to see whe your done; don’t forget to show us.

I personally would pick the brightest color for the stop border and then brown.

I really like it ... a nice warm effect, and definitely manly.
The lights in there keep it from being too dark and drab.

How about no border?

Not every quilt must have a border and this is one that would be a perfect candidate.
Just continue making the same block pattern/design you are now,
til you get the size you want/need.

Before you start stitching, check the 3rd and 4th blocks up on the bottom right ...
I believe they are both flipped around from where they should be.

Nice quilt, looks like a cozy quilt. I agree with no border (if it is the size you want) and then bind in that gold color.
