What if you have the narrow dark inner border (like on this page) then a slightly larger light border, then the border print, and then optionally the green paisley?
    I love yesterdays choice! Beautiful quilt!

    It looks great the way it is. But if you were looking for a light springtime feeling then a lighter border would be better. Perhaps, as bigsis63 mentioned, changing the inner border would brighten it up.

    If this were mine I would agree. Green inner border, the paisley, and then the darker binding you currently have as the inner border. Ties the quilt together as your eye starts at the center, and follows the colors going outward. But, that is how I see it and how I tie colors together. The dark inner border is too bold in my opinion.

    looked back on your prev post. i think the dark border really makes the quilt pop. the current option is ok but the prev one is more vibrant. good luck. these choices are really tough and ultimately you have to do what works for you.
