Default Border help

Trying to decide on borders for this quilt. Should I go as laid out brown red Floral. Or brown floral red? I'm open to any and all suggestions. Thanks in advance for your help

Love the layout you have. I always like a darker first border as it looks like a frame.

How you have it pictured looks good. The brown frames it and makes the design stand out. The red solid keeps it looking grounded, and the floral pulls it together. Will you bind in brown? .

It is going to be pretty just the way you have it displayed!

I would try using a skinnier strip of the red since it is an accent.
