    Well, either one is very, very pretty. Do which one you like.

    I like the green one. The pink one looks unfinished somehow.

    if you really really want the orange to stand out use the first one and the green stands out in the second one I like them both.

    why not use both? 1/2 the borders in green and 1/2 in the pink. then you can strip piece the binding as well......give it a different look

    I agree with this. Also liked the previous idea of a narrow yellow border before the pink or green border.

    Green is my favorite color - but I really like the second photo - looks red or pink - that's the one I like.

    I AGONIZE over these decisions. Sometimes these decisions can drive me CRAZY, lol! But, Imo, i think I would do more then one border. I like both layouts..both are great! But I think a multiple border would frame your center, give it cohesiveness, and finish it.
