DJ in EQ ~ Would like opinions on color

This is the DJ that I have been designing in EQ5. I thought it might be a good idea to explore color in the software before I actually made all of the blocks. I think my block count for this DJ is somewhere around 50. Now I'm beginning to wonder if the plain green triangles in the outside border is overpowering the center? Do you have an opinion on this? I do want this quilt to be mostly all Red & Green with muslin background. All opinions are most welcome. Thank you for taking the time to think about this. Sorry for the crummy picture, but I have yet to learn how to bring a better "snapshot" from EQ and paste it somewhere else. This one I ran through 'Paint' first, in order to make it a 'jpg' file.
Thanks for stopping by... toodles and all for now,

I think it's stunning, Cyn. I love the green in the border. It's unusual for a DJ, but the way you have used the colors makes it beautiful! I'd go with it the way you have it. You don't want the same thing as everyone else, do you?

Thank you, Caron. And, no I don't want the same as everyone else. This is a pretty bad picture--it looks better when viewed directly in EQ. Thank you so much for your opinion. . . I value what you think!
Hugs, /cyn:)

I think the green triangles in the outside border make the quilt really "pop"! I think it is your color placement, as Caron stated "its stunning". Elaine in SLO, Ca

I like it....I might have to make one like it for my next DJ....I don't think the green triangles overpower the center at all. I agree with Elaine and Caron...stunning!

Very nice Cyn, The green in the borders is perfect, kind of surrounds everything to make it stand out.
