    I am not a 'orange' person . . . but that is pretty!

    If it was me I would lean towards the 'purple' for a boarder, making the oranges pop more. IMHO

    I'd add a 4" border of the purple print, then bind it with the orange. I really like how this turned out and that each of the Dresden's has an independent look. Nice!
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    The purple is what I will use.

    If it were mine, I would put a narrow strip of the yellow between the two darker borders.
