You're welcome .... it's easily done, but a lot easier to catch it now, than once you get stitching.
Good Luck ... I hope your son is thrilled with your/his quilt.

I didn't even notice that!
It's a great quilt. I'm thinking a dark border, not sure why. I love those fabrics!

I also think it needs no border.

Very striking quilt for a young man...if you still decide on borders I like the idea of a small border in red or green then a print for an outer border.

I would choose a rich deep green and a red that is similar to what is already in the quilt. Either wide red/narrow green or vice versa. Such lovely rich colors! And they all appear to be scraps from your stash.

I like the idea of borders. I would like a subtle, masculine print and I would use that nice gold color as a small inner border or for the binding. To me, it just begs to be used on the outside of the quilt.

I'd like to see it with a narrow burgundy border and then a dark Paisley, as someone previously mentioned. Very nice masculine quilt!

Nice quilt … I hope he treasure's it! As far as borders … I would do a small border with a neutral then a color for the outer border and binding.
