    without the brown border it is a much "softer" look. Bold with the brown..... I like contrast, so the brown for me. Either will be wonderful

    I vote for brown ! Too much pink , but that's just me. The pink border drew my eye away from the quil.t

    Too much pink for me too, personally, but I know that's the kind of look she loves. The brown helps give my eyes a break.

    I guess it's a matter of taste, but I'm with you-I like the thinner brown between the beige and pink the best.

    It's a beautiful quilt; I'm sure your aunt will be thrilled with it.

    I think the darker brown border provides a frame for the rest of the quilt....and I really like the color combinations!

    I think the brown inner border is winning. Really great looking quilt.
    Good luck, Kutnso

    I love all the colors in your quilt and the design. Both tops look lovely but I think the one with the brown border is a little more striking.

    I tried that arrangement and posted the picture on page 2 but in my opinion it didn't turn out quite as attractive as the neutral inner border, especially when I remove the lines in EQ7. I'll try to get another picture without the lines when I get home from work. :)

    The brown border frames the blocks beautifully.

    The brown inner border frames it well. I prefer that version.

    Oops.... I was late in first response ... board members are SOOOO fast in responding at once....

    I checked back to page 2 ... Yes, I agree ... putting the brown as the first inner border bleeds into the basic pattern too much .... your first configuration is better ....

    The one with the brown, using all three solids looks great to me.

    I actually tried that setup on page 2 and I think it made the colors feel too "heavy" in some way. Thank you, though! All of the fabrics are so soft... I can't wait to finish my current UFO so that I can move on to this project.

    I would definitely use the brown, but perhaps make it an inch or so wider than the cream. Lovely fabric choices!

    I love your version with the narrow brown border (first one on p.2). I love the warm wishes pattern and your colors and fabric choices are so pretty :)
