Basket lattice quilt

I took a class last JUNE to make this quilt and left it in a box for almost a year!  It was very time consuming due to multiple pieces and unfinished seams throughout, so I just lost interest.  Then a few friends finished theirs and they were beautiful, so I took mine out last Friday and finished it just a few minutes ago.
The fabric is Dancin' in the Rain and I loved it from the first moment I saw it, even though I am generally not a batik person.  It's just so pretty.  I was going to give this as a wedding gift to a cute couple but my friends all said no!  I have to keep it! :) so I might.  I was thinking about a border with appliquéd umbrellas  and raindrops which I think would be pretty.  Or I might leave it alone and just quilt it.  Now that the hard part is done, borders will be easy.
