To border or not ?

Not always easy to answer that question.
My first idea was not to add a border but then I said :
Why not ?
and
What if ?
Let give it a try.
I have to say that I layered the border in a hurry and the choice of the fabric is not ideal ; I only wanted to visualise a type of border I had in mind.

If I add this kind of border I will have to change the colour of the border and pay attention to obtain a more jagged edge between the central theme and the border.
I will also have to keep in mind that this quilt will be “uncomfortable” to machine quilt.
It’s not THAT big but with the border it will measure +/- 52 x 36 inch .
In a way I want to add this kind of border because it reflects the abrupt cliffs from the isle of Frioul !
