I'm trying to decide on the borders now. It is hard for me to quilt for others. Ususally, I make a quilt and then decide who gets it. Making a quilt just for one person is hard for me.

I agree it is so nice the way it is. If you wanted to add a thin border, it might be nice to use the light green and then bind it in the same color.
I love it!

And I also love it as it is now. It is so bright and cheerful it doesn't need a border.

Hmmm...I hadn't thought about doing that. A good option that I might use in my next quilt. I think I need to add borders on it to get it to the size I want.

If you don’t need to make it larger I would just bind it as it is. Not all quilts need a border. Look at Avery’s I made here using the same pattern.
However if you need it larger, and only one border I’d go with the darker green print. If you want an inner border what about the white print say 2 1/2 inch then the darker in a 5 1/2 inch ? That would add 7 inches all around so 14 inches wider than it is now and 14 inches longer. Just my opinion but just enjoy making it. Relax, whoever this is for will love it. I do! One reason I didn’t use a border for Avery’s quilt is I wanted it to look old, vintage and back then I don’t remember quilts my Momo made having any borders. (I know Avery’s fabrics are brighter than fabrics of old, but she has canning jars and her mom likes the patchwork.)Whatever you decide will be wonderful. It already is. Just do what makes you satisfied. Love your quilt.

Exactly

Thanks for the advice! I auditioned using light and dark borders and they really finish the top! I'll probably hand quilt it so it'll be a while until it is done.
