Default Need help choosing borders

I finished this top today. The back will be pieced with leftover blocks and fabric from the front. I'm not sure which fabrics I should use for the borders and binding. Can you give me some input? Thanks for your help[ATTACH=CONFIG]541613[/ATTACH][ATTACH=CONFIG]541614[/ATTACH]

Maybe go with no border. Many modern quilts don't have them. If it's not big enough make another row of blocks. Or do a piano key border.

If the borders are needed to make it bigger I would use the darkest gray for the border and binding. Personally I would not put a border on it. It is really nice without one.

The one on the left or the large floral for the border. The yellow print for the binding.

I agree with the other ladies, if you need more size make more blocks and no border. I would save the dark gray for the binding.

I'd bind in black to make it all pop.

I'd do a pin dot charcoal grey print binding, and no border.

Well, I would make an inner border of the yellow and then use the darker gray for an outer border. But then, I really like borders.

Beautiful quilt!! It really looks good.
