    Too many pretty fabrics

    Help... I made the mistake of purchasing more fabric after I had made up my mind and now I can't decide. The quilt is 3's Company with LQS fabrics. I need to make a choice between the Brown border fabric or the red floral for my border. Please help I have had this laying out for a while and I love them both Thanks a Lot

    I like the darker one on the right. I think it will set your block off better.

    I like the brown one on the right as well. Blends better with the colors in the quilt.
    The one who dies with the most fabric wins.

    The brown one looks excellent. Really brings out the colors in the blocks. And I love red florals but the brown is the one to use. Beautiful quilt by the way. The blocks look like they were intermediate blocks. Great job!

    My eye was instantly drawn to the one on the right. On my monitor it looks dark green with gold, tan and red stylized flowers.

    What I can see of your quilt is just gorgeous as well and this fabric will truly make it pop as it should.

    i vote for the red floral border. i think the fabric pattern goes better with your blocks
    but there's nothing wrong with the other look, either
