I like #3 - Polka dots with large dark gray ric-rac. It seems to brighten up the quilt and give focus. I would use the small elephant print as the backing if you have enough.

I agree with Barb. It is more pleasing to my eye. Polka Dot with fat gray or light or dark pink, but definitely the polka dot. That makes the appliques center stage. For me, even though there are a lots of colors, with the elephant border I had a hard time resting my eyes Whereas, with the polka dot, I could more easily see the elephant applique. And if enough of elephant print for the backing.

I like the polka dot with light pink rickrack, but I think polka dots with any color rickrack works too.

I like the first one...Polka dots, and the dark pink ric-rac. The Dark gray comes in a close second.
