    Please help me out--I think I like the dark side closest to the quilt the best, but wondered what the rest of you thought?
    Thanks!

    brown because of the contrast with the thin blue sashing

    I think brown side in seems in keeping with the general flow of the blocks.

    I like the first one. Although, both of them are really beautiful! :?

    I like the dark to the outside, but I'd really like to see a narrow dark brown frame first, then the border with the dark to the outside.

    I like the way narrow dark frames stop the eye and mind from wandering and contain the colors of the quilt.
