Default Opinions needed please

Need some help deciding on border fabric. Does the dark purple or the light purple look better?

I like the dark, personally. I often think, too, from a practical standpoint, that the border is where fingerprints and other soil accumulates, so I often take that into consideration in choosing my border.

I like the dark. It seems to "stop" the pattern well.

I vote for the dark, and I think your color choices in the quilt are beautiful

I'm going to be the lone dissenter lol. I like the light purple because I think the fabric matches the quilt better. I would probably choose dark if it was one of the darks from in the quilt. Unless it's in the quilt and I'm just not seeing it. Very pretty!!
