    Go with #3 for all of the above reasons. Nice colors.

    Love #1. It really makes the rest of the quilt come alive. My attention was drawn from the border inward to your lovely blocks.

    I prefer the 3rd. border. It has a more finished look. I think borders #1 and #2 take away from the main quilt. Love the colors and well, everything about the quilt.

    I fully agree here, but it is your quilt. What makes you feel good?

    I like the piano key one and have used piano key borders often. I do dislike cutting out the blocks, but I recently got the accuquilt go which has a die that is the perfect size for the blocks.

    Hi there. They are all lovely and would suit, but I like #3 as the plain border just has a lovely finish and seems to frame the quilt nicely. Also, this makes the pattern stand out and not seem to be too busy. :)

    I like #1 best but do agree that #3 will allow for some nice quilting space! Love the colors and can't wait to see what you choose.

    I think #1 is beautiful, but I always try to do the first border that stops the business of the quilt. That is a great border, but kind of continues the quilt look. Just my opinion. But the beauty of quilting is that what we design is of out liking and our personality. Good job.

    I like the 3rd choice but I'm not sure I would put the extra blue around the outside. I like it with just the brown.

    I like choice #2. I think the thicker colored squares goes better with the border. #1 in my opinion doesn't look as good because the first border (before the keys) is too thick and makes it look like (with the outer border) the keys are in jail or something. #3 looks nice too but it looks like it was done because it was quick and easy. Therefore I would choose #2. Just my biatchy opinion tonight.

    I love choice #1 too. And piano keys aren't so bad, just strip piecein the colors you want, cut into sections, and sew them together. Not so bad.
