Elsie - Are 'Ya Done Yet?

I finally attached all of Elsie's pieced borders.  She's been hanging on the design wall this week, auditioning some red binding fabrics.  I keep telling myself she is done and doesn't need any additional borders.  Now that I've seen this photograph, I'm not so sure.  The second to the last gold border has a strong visual "pull" and I think a strong outer border might be needed to balance things.  It could be a plain border, red or gold or a fabric containing both colors.  Or maybe the outer border should be alternating red and gold triangles.  Time to dig in the stash and see what inspiration pops up!
Just for fun, here are some close-ups of the fussy-cut centers

of the Ohio Star blocks in the last border.
