    Another vote for the combo on the right. I don't usually go for browns, but love that combination.

    Right side is my pick.

    I think I would go with the left one because to me the right one is too busy.

    I think either is a good color match, but my choice would be dependent on how wide the border is. The brown is a much larger print and may not show as well in a narrow border. Just something to think about.

    I agree, they are both beautiful, however, I think (IMHO) that the Brown floral goes best with what you have. Beautiful quilt.

    I vote for the one on the right. I just
    feel it draws attention to the beautiful blocks within the body of the quilt. I would love to see what you decide.

    The border and pattern on the right looks good to me.

    I like the dark one on the right too. Really nice blocks.
    Happy fingers, happy heart.

    Agreed! I don't see enough of the red within the quilt.

    Both are nice, but I fell in love with the brown. It makes the hint of brown in your quilt POP. Good luck!

    Too many pretty fabrics

    I truly understand you problem. I have to say I'd go for the brown and red on the right.

    I would not use the floral. I would save that for another project where it can be the prominent fabric in like some kind of block pattern like a cross and chain, or maybe a basket type block.

    So many choices, so many decisions, so little time. LOL Please post a picture after you make your decision for all of us to see the colors you went with.

    IMHO I would use the narrow camel, followed by the large burgundy floral and bind in the narrow camel. I think the burgundy makes the quilt pop. The camels blend in. I believe I would leave the green out.

    I like the one on the left. Great contrast with bringing out the burgundy in your quilt. It is very pretty.

    I love the red floral border - it contains all the colors of the body of the quilt and pulls it all together.

    Wow! Great top of blocks. They look fantastic. :-)

    I like the brown option (along with the tan and red in that group). For me, the brown contains the top and the red and tan help collect it all together.

    The red floral on the right, although pretty, competes too much with the blocks. My eyes didn't know which to look at first.

    I sure hope you post a picture when you have it completed. It proves to beautiful.

    best,

    My best is the least I can do.

    I like the one on the right, however I would skip the first light strip and use the the next red strip against the quilt.....I think it would make it stand out.......but definitely go with the one on the right
