    Polka dot brown, please. It seems to "frame" it best, in my opinion.

    This is what I would do also or white 1 1/2 in., pink 2 in. and then a wider brown and bind in brown. Your quilt is very pretty.

    I like the brown. It brings out the colors of the quilt.

    Personally, I think the pink makes the quilt pop while the brown is nice it makes the quilt a lot darker. Is this for a cancer patient? If so, the bright happy pinks would be the way to go for me. They are so much more cheerful than the brown. JMHO.....

    I would make a border 3or4 inch with the white polka dots and use the brown polka dots as binding. Use the pink as a backing. Very interesting texture in your quilt.

    I like the brown polka dot for the outside but I think a small inside border out of the pink.

    I would use the pink on the bottom, maybe an inch then 2-3 inch polka dot to finish.

    I like the idea of a narrow (1" finished) pink border than the white polka dot a least 1/3 the width of a block then the brown for the binding.

    I agree with maryb here except I like the brown because itreally catches your eye and then the pink binding would bring it all together.

    Like the brown print. Going to be a very beautiful quilt. Be sure to show us the finished quilt.

    I agree with maryb119. I think the brown polka dot blends in too much with the rest of the pattern/colors. Love how the multi-colored polka dots just stand out and adds such a nice touch.
