    Which way would the stripe look best for the border? Border would be about 2 1/2 inches wide. The conventional choice would be long vertical stripes, but I kinda like the look of the short horizontal stripes. Can't make up my mind. What do you think?

    I like the vertical to match the vertical in the quilt
