    I love #2 -the blue contrasts nicely with the browns.

    I like the first pic with the brown narrow border. But I think I would have to see the entire quilt to know for sure which reads better.

    I really like number one with the brown inner border - I think it makes it look warmer!

    me too. Eye is drawn first to the dominant brown in either one, the blue (or teal) in the center lets your eyes enjoy the whole quilt.

    Both are nice - #1 emits a warmer tone; #2 cooler. Either choice is going to be a very nice quilt!

    I vote for #1 also. Both are nice but it depends on what YOU like the best. After all that wonderful work, trust your judgement, it's worked so far hasn't it?

    Well I will join in with number one because it gives a warmer feel to the quilt and accents the narrow border very nicely with the dark binding pow great colors by the way.

    It depends ... do you want a BROWN quilt or a quilt of many colors ... the brown border makes the browns dominate and bleed into the outer border, so all you see are browns ... the teal gives all the different colors equal weight, so you see everything as discrete colors ... I personally would go with the teal so that ALL the colors shine ... and I love, love, love the outer border fabric. Lovely!

    I prefer the second because I always like the binding to be the darkest.

    I'm going with number 1 because the binding shows better than on the number 2 example. I like both.
