    Which middle border help

    Hi, I can't decide which middle border to pick the light green or bright orange. The stripe is the first then either light green or orange then the animal print for outer border. So what do you like in the middle the light green or orange. Thanks bunches for all your input. Oh and I apologize now if my pics show up large....

    I like the green as the eye continues going out to the last border. Hugs

    I like the orange because it adds a "pop" of color. (I may have been watching too many home decorating shows......)

    I like the orange. It gives the quilt a pop of color as well as giving it an overall rich look.
    Cute quilt BTW!

    I like the orange, but I think it should be a narrow border.

    I think the green looks more consistent with the quilt. The orange stands out too much.

    Definitely orange. It really pops that happy fabric. I agree that it should be very narrow.

    Ok, if it is the orange my next question would be how narrow, the stripe border is 2" finished the outside border will be 4" finished, so would a 1.5" finish orange be the right width then?

    I like the green. The orange "pops" a little too much for my taste. But it will be cute either way. If you go with the orange, maybe just a very narrow strip of it would be an idea.

    Actually I would not put in a middle border. On the first picture I didn't even notice the green it was so light, and I liked the animal print with the stripe. Having said that... if you choose to use a middle border I'd go with the orange, but very narrow, like cut an inch border and then you'd have a 1/2 " border to pop!

    I like the green. The orange kind of makes your eye stop there. Maybe use it as your binding to finish it off and bring your eye all the way out thru the last border.

    I like the orange and I would make it very narrow. I've been adding 1/4" stop borders in pop colors on my quilts and really like the look.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.
