I need your expert input/advice regarding borders for this quilt top I'm working on. The pattern calls for a narrow (1-inch) border and then a wider (6-inch) border. The pattern photo shows a striped fabric for the narrow border and a large/busy floral for the wider border.
I have 1/2 yard of the dark blue fabric left over but only small scraps of the others. Originally I bought this fabric for another quilt pattern but it has been in my to-do pile for so long that I no longer liked the pattern (that tells you how many years it sat around...LOL). I'm tempted to use the dark blue fabric for the narrow border but wonder if it will mess up the design where it connects to the same color in the main center design. I've also thought about using a plaid fabric for the 6-inch border.
If this was your quilt, what would you do? The second photo attached is a close up of the fabrics if that helps. Any and all suggestions/opinions would be appreciated. Thanks.
