    Borders, need help choosing please

    Here is some fabric that I have for the border on this quilt. I would like to know what you quilters out there think? I value your opinions.

    Thank you. The finished quilt is at the end of pictures.

      My favorite is also the dark green (your picture # 013.jpg) or the third one loaded. My second choice is your picture # 011.jpg - the first one.

      I have a similar quilt top that needs put together - your have given me ideas.

      Thanks for sharing.

        Monique, that is a hard choice, I agree with Sandy, of those available I also think the dark green (3rd pic), the contrast is a little too much but the contrast is the best option I think, or the first one. Those light ones just seem to disappear, the floral doesn't sit comfortably with the plainer fabric for me and while I love the little purple butterflys, and I like purple and green together, I don't think so in this instance.

        Have fun, I'm sure it will be lovely when you are finished.

          Monique, I agree with Sandy, and Dragonfly on the choice of the dk green and the med green, they are the best ones to go with the colors in your top.

          Thanks for sharing

              I think the off white or the dark green.

                Wow! I love this group!! Thank you for your choices. I think the dark green won hands down. Can't wait to finish and show you all how it looks.

                Thanks again.
