    Without the pink--IMHO it draws the eye away from the pieced center. But neither way would be wrong as both are attractive.

    Without the pink. Also, I think it would have been nice to miter the black border. Just my opinion

    Both are beautiful, though unless you need it bigger, I vote no pink!

    I would not use the pink. The first border is dark and "heavy" - it needs to be on the outside. I guess this is another No on the pink...

    I like the pink. It makes the rest stand out more IMHO

    Unless you have to make it bigger I would vote to not add the pink. IMHO the overall design works better just the way it is. Beautiful colors....nice job!

    I like it without the pink - the dark fabric frames the center and gives the eye a place to stop.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    I like it without the pink. The brown seems to frame it just right! Beautiful quilt, by the way.

    I would have to agree with spokanequilter. The pink border distracts from the center. Either way, it is a beautiful quilt!!!

    Much better with the pink paisley - it takes the quilt from fairly good to a real zinger.

    My vote is for the pink - don't care for the paisley. By the way, what pattern are you using? Would love to make one with that pattern.

    I like either way, but lean towards without the pink, unless you need the size. Beautiful quilt and love the butterfly fabric.

    I didn't read over all of the opinions, but has anyone suggested putting the pink on the inside, then the darker one on the outside?
