Default Which border?

I have played with dozens of borders, and I have narrowed it down to two. They are very similar, just reversing the two inner borders. Which do you prefer?

Thanks for any input.

Dina

I like the blue on the inside. It helps set it off the white seems to blend more. But that is just me.

Well #1 is a floating effect. #2 is a step effect. I myself like #2. How is going to use the quilt. That is a lot of white in #1. So I would take that into consideration as well! Luann

I like the tiny blue. It frames it . Pretty quilt. Sorry after I looked at it again, I like the larger blue. It draws you into the quilt more.

I would go with #2. I saw #1 first and thought oh, that is beautiful and then I scrolled down to #2 and was bowled over by the difference. Just love #2.

Okay, I was leaning towards the second, and now I am leaning more that way. Thanks. I think I will go ahead and cut the fabric and just go with it. The first is the border arrangement that the pattern suggested. It second just seems to tone down the white a bit.

Thanks.
