I think the 3rd picture is absolutely the best (polka dots with darker ric rac). This allows your eyes to settle on the center of the quilt. There is lots of pink in the center, so the darker ric rac frames that center nicely. The elephant border is too busy and my eyes were darting all over the place when attempting to focus on the center.

If this is to be a quilt that is used, I'd nix the idea of the rickrack. My experience is that it does not stay flat when laundered and takes away from a neat appearance. It doesn't wear well. If you like the look, consider piecing chevrons across the piece. (I like the polka dots.)

I don't think you can go far wrong with any of your choices, to be honest, but I prefer the polka dots with either of the pink ric racs.

I am partial to the the first lay out. It has a nice and soft appeal.

I prefer the polka dot border too for the reasons mentioned and either color rick rack depending on your color choice. Very cute pattern and quilt!

I like the elephants with grey polka dots and dark pink ric-rac. Going to be an adorable quilt. Good luck on your decision and share with us which finish you end up doing
