UFO No More... (I Hope!)

I dug this piece out of my UFO pile -- I started it in a class several years ago. The original project was an embellished purse, but I just don't enjoy that kind of sewing any more so I think I'll turn it into a little quilt.

The deconstructed deep green braid is a nicer color than it appears in the photo, but there just isn't much contrast between the braid and the black background. I've auditioned a few fabrics for the borders and think this combo brightens it up a bit and (hopefully) gets away from any impression of Christmas colors. The proportions aren't quite right but I think it has promise. Any comments?
