    I like border #2 - that blue really sets it off.

    #1 has my vote. Coincidentally I'm currently working on a quilt that has those same colors in it. I think the brown brightens the colors in the border print and the dark teal provides a perfect finial for the quilt.

    I like #1, but I would make it narrower than 2" - maybe 1/2-1/4".
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    I like them both. The first seems to make the quilt brighter while the second seems to subdue it a bit. But both are pleasing to my eye.

    That is a tough decision. What a beautiful quilt! I would choose #2 if it was my quilt, because the blue is more muted and doesn't draw my eye away from the pieced top. It seems to accent rather than distract. Good luck making a choice, it will come out wonderful either way.

    In the pix, the brown border seems to blend somewhat with the brown that's in the quilt, whereas the teal border does not blend with the teal in the quilt; if he pix are not misleading, I would choose the 2nd one.

    When I initially looked at it, I liked #1. Having studied it, I think that #2 would be best. I would like a 1/2" 1st border, then your beautiful batik, then 1/2" border of the teal. The brown binding in #2 seems to disappear. Regardless, it is gorgeous.

    When you lay the two borders next to the quilt, which one do you keep going back to? That's the one to choose.

    I like the first with the brown, but I think it should be narrower maybe 1/2inch. Pretty quilt!

    What she said. I like the first one best and didn't know why. Prism explains it perfectly.

    Ditto on the brown being the same color as the brown block in the quilt and so where it is next to a brown block you can't see the distinction between the two. The blue is a darker blue and sets off both the lighter blue and the brown. IMO

    I too like #1, but #2 is beautiful if you want more blue.

    I like #1. The rust color stands out nice.
