    which inner border?

    I am working on this quilt from scraps from another project. I can't decide on what inner border to use.

    I really like the orange - it matches tweety's feet but is it too bright? The stripe outer border I will probably make smaller that how it is laid out now Would I be better off using the darker blue?

    Great quilt!! Between the two, I like the dark blue (and usually I am a "bright inner border gal"). What about yellow? I'm just not loving the dark blue. Whatever you decide will be great!!

    I vote for the blue. It's a bit quieter.

    I like the orange! I think it makes the whole quilt lighter. The blue seems too dark compared to the centre and border for my taste.

    How about the blue border with an orange flange for a pop of color?

    I like the blue. But, with tweety I am sure it is a child's quilt so I say brighten it up with the orange.

    Have you considered yellow or a light blue? The blue seems dark but the orange isn't taking my eye either. Love your Tweety and the stripe! Happy, happy, happy.

    Both look good. Each changes the look of the quilt. Hard decision!! I think I would choose the orange, brighter and fun!

    While both are nice, I think the orange is the better choice for a kids quilt. Makes the quilt more "fun".

    I would use the blue (dark) as a flange with the border you show. I think the width of the blue inner border you show in the first picture is 'too much'. I would also like the orange as a flange; but, not as an inner border.
