    When I initially looked at it, I liked #1. Having studied it, I think that #2 would be best. I would like a 1/2" 1st border, then your beautiful batik, then 1/2" border of the teal. The brown binding in #2 seems to disappear. Regardless, it is gorgeous.

    When you lay the two borders next to the quilt, which one do you keep going back to? That's the one to choose.

    I like the first with the brown, but I think it should be narrower maybe 1/2inch. Pretty quilt!

    What she said. I like the first one best and didn't know why. Prism explains it perfectly.

    Ditto on the brown being the same color as the brown block in the quilt and so where it is next to a brown block you can't see the distinction between the two. The blue is a darker blue and sets off both the lighter blue and the brown. IMO

    I too like #1, but #2 is beautiful if you want more blue.

    I like #1. The rust color stands out nice.
