    If the choices are either white or black, I'd go with white.

    The black is so harsh. All I see is the binding and not the quilt. Personally I would us a softer color. Must my opinion..

    If you're choosing white or black, I vote for white. If you're thinking of another color, I'd go for either the red or one of the blues.

    At first I thought in red but white will be much brighter. Definitely not black

    I agree with you, choosing the color of the border is very important, it can change the look of a quilt

    I think white really brights up your quilt, it totally would be my first choice

    I would go with med blue or aqua thats in the quilt. If I had to choose between the black and white. It would be white.

    I'd go with the white. The black definitely doesn't work. Quilts made of squares look good borderless as well.

    I would pick a color within the quilt or use white. I think it would look much softer with either the soft rose or an aqua.
