    Brown! The pattern on the brown matches the pattern on the border, IMO! The color of the teal seems a bit dark, at least on this computer screen. Guess I ought to fess up to loving the brown batik and the pattern batik.

    There's something I really don't like about the teal. You've hit the nail on the head. It stops the eye from going to the very nice teal/brown border.

    If you use the brown it dominates heavily.
    If you use the teal, you see both better.

    And for me, I do see the teal better, as in sticks out like a sore thumb-------it's way too dark for rest of the quilt. But then maybe there is quite a bit of darker teals in the rest of the quilt.

    BTW, I love the pattern.

    There you go!

    I'm thinking that my real objection to the teal is that it's too intense or dark or whatever. I suspect I'd like the teal if it were not so dark, and if its pattern showed up a bit more.

    I wouldn't mind the teal for the binding, but I thought we were discussing the inner border

    I have the borders sewn on now. Thanks to all for your opinions. I used the brown for a 2" border with the print measuring 10". In the corners, I used the teal for a 2" corner where the brown meets. Then I extended the brown to the edge. Like 1/4 of a disappearing 9 patch. Now I just have to finish piecing the backing (quilt ends up measuring 114 x 113). The backing isn't wide enough, so I will be adding a strip offset from the middle using the practice blocks and rejects (including the corners that I made the wrong size). Can't wait to get it to the LAQ and have it finished.

    I love them both, could you share the name of the pattern?
