Default Which One?

I didn't have anything suitable in my stash for borders for this baby quilt so I went to Hobby Lobby to buy something. I couldn't decide which one of these two fabrics so I bought both! (Easy solution, right!) I just love the little duckies! Now, which one? Or which layout? I couldn't get the last photo to load, but it is a narrow blue border with a wider duckie fabric border. Thanks in advance!

Well, here's my .02, I would go with the narrow blue border and then the wider duckie fabric.

BTW, it looks like it will be a really cute baby quilt.

Can you post a picture of the rest of the quilt?

I'm not excited about either of those fabrics with the block(s) I can see.

The squirrels are very cute.

I like 2 borders. I think they will both look good.

I agree. I'd like to see more of the quilt with the border fabric near it.

If those are your only two choices, I choose the blue. The other might work better if the background fabric was unbleached muslin. Gor me it just needs more color with the white.

I agree. I'd be inclined to use something that would pull the reds, greens, and yellows together, instead of introducing more colors into the mix.
