Either choice is good, however, I like the blue, especially with the grey sashing; but both are nice. That probably didn't help much did it?

I prefer the Blue. It looks more natural and nature-friendly. Mariah

I like the sashing in Pic 1 and the border in Pic 2. The brighter sashing sets off the blue in the blocks perfectly, I think, while the sashing in Pic 2 is a little too cool and brings the entire quilt down a bit. Either border works, I think but the blue feels more wintery to me and picks up the blue blocks a bit better.

I like the second one. The green would be ok too if you used a silver inner border as in the second one. In fact it would pick up bits of green in the quilt, like the scarves. I think it is the "warm" color of the inner border on the first one that's throwing it off for me. Snow is cold, brrr! Even on bright sunny winter days it seems the sun has a white light rather than an orangey light.
