Default Which One--- New Ideas

I gathered that about half of you didn't like my new fabrics in "Which One?" that I posted yesterday and I can see where you are coming from. Unfortunately I can't follow all the suggestions as 1) I am totally out of the light green, yellow, and red that was used in the quilt. I liturally had to piece patches of the green together in order to make it work. And 2) I don't get to town often to buy fabric. We are on a tight buget so I can't just go out and buy more. I always work with what I have and saved up to go buy the new fabrics; I would hate not to use at least one in this baby quilt

Anyway, that's my reasons for not exactly listening But here are two more ideas. What do you think?

I didn't vote on the first one but I see what I like here. I would use the green for a border & then I would bind it with the light duck fabric. I know that was not one of your options but if you had enough duck fabric for a large border, you should have enough to use for binding. That's going to be a darling baby quilt.

I like the narrow lite inside border and wider dark outside border.

I agree with AVFD215. Use the light border first to finish it off and then the dark green to ground it.

You really don't have to please anyone but yourself. Its your quilt. Did Picasso fuss because someone didn't like that particular shade of green?

Sorry, I really like the narrow green border. It seems to finish the blocks and picks up the green from the blocks and the ducky fabric. I think the ducky fabric is too busy as a first border but looks lovely as a wider second border. I know, I just have to be different, don't I.

I vote for the duck narrow border and green wider. Cute quilt and those are darling squirrel appliqué.

I'm odd man out here - I'd go with just the wide green border and not use the duck fabric. Then again, it's your quilt. I might use the duck fabric for binding?? Do you need both borders to get it to the size you want? Just my thoughts.
