Default which would make a better border?

I am working on a crib quilt for my soon to be great nephew and I can't decide on the outer border.. so I thought that I would as what you guys think

I am going to use the gray for the small inner border. But I can't decide on the yellow or the gray for the outer border. Any thoughts?

I like the yellow. It is a little brighter and looks great.

So cute! I really liked the yellow at first, but when I saw the gray I thought it looked more restful. They both work well so you can hardly go wrong.

I'm not overly fond of the narrow gray border. If you used the gray print for the wider border, maybe you could use a solid yellow for the narrow border.

I think the yellow is cheerier. Then you could use grey for binding.

I vote for the yellow. It looks more cheerful.

I'm normally all about gray, but I actually like the yellow a bit better.

I think because the yellow strips are a bit thinner in the quilt the yellow border helps highlight them.

My vote is yellow, but both are pretty.
