    Option two, with the blue for the binding would look nice :-D

    Love the quilt!! What if you did border option 2 (the narrow blue border) and border option 3...putting the pretty red print next to that followed by the yellow print outer border? OR Border option 3 and then either put the narrow blue border as the last border and binding or just bind with the blue. I think having both the red and blue used as part of the border would look really nice.
