Default Need help choosing borders

I am using a Cozy Quilt pattern called "Twirling" with Moda Double Chocolat fabrics. I can't decide on the borders except I have to use the paisley for the outside border because of the amount of fabric required. Should I go with first inside border of beige, then red, then paisley....or brown, red, paisley....or beige, brown, paisley????????? Any other ideas! Thanks for your help!

I like the first picture with the red in there between the brown and paisley.

That is really hard. I would want to "float" the quilt with a small white border, the brown with the triangles looked great and I also like the red. But that may be too much for the quilt. So I like the 2nd picture the best.

I like the dark brown as the first inner border to frame the quilt. With the beige, seems like it just blends into the piecework.

I really like the dark brown / pink then paisley. I have some of that paisley - it's gorgeous!

The dark brown with some HST triangles inserted frames the quilt very nicely.
