    Need help for borders on this quilt

    I could use some help with what borders to put on this quilt. I am posting a pictures of all the fabrics I have left that may work for the border. I also don't have any of the dark border that I used for sashing. I have looked everywhere for something similar but can't find any that are close or in the same tones. I need about a 15 to 20 inch drop of this. I really would like to have less on the top but don't know if this is possible. I would like other suggestions also.

    The last picture is a thought that maybe I should do a braid of all the different colors in the quilt.
    Thanks

    I vote for 3rd down on left. I like the varied width of the borders.
    Have a great day sewing and remember to "not sweat the small stuff"!!

    I like the second on the left side. It makes the blocks pop.

    I've been dealing with a border issue also. I like the third on the left group and also the braid idea is terrific. Your quilt is fabulous.

    I like the second on the right as well, because it picks up so well on the colors in the quilt. However, my second choice would be the second on the left, because as Swan Song says, it really makes those blocks pop! I guess it's your choice what effect you want to achieve. BTW it's a truly gorgeous quilt!

    I vote for the second down on the right. The narrow borders really frame the quilt and I like the dark fabric. The quilt is very pretty.

    I like the 3 down on the left. I think the braid might detract from the main design.
