Where do I go from here?

 So I joined the x and + along a while back, finished my first block and that was it for a while. A few weeks ago I decided I'd better get busy. I opted for the 7 1/2" block from Badskirt and figured that I could manage 25 blocks before I ran out of steam. I used lots of textfabric for the pluses and quite a few polkadots for the crosses. The rest of the fabrics were pulled from my scraps - without making a dent in that heap, of course! So here they are, all stitched together into a very colourful top.

I really don't know what to do with it next - do I add a border or not? And if I add a border - what colour should it be? And next, there's the quilting, a random stipply, swirly pattern,paralel lines, outline of the pattern or what? I can't seem to come up with a solution, so I think it'll just have to marinate for a while. I welcome any suggestions though!

personally I love it as is, but it'll look great both ways!
