    Please help me out--I think I like the dark side closest to the quilt the best, but wondered what the rest of you thought?
    Thanks!

    I think brown side in seems in keeping with the general flow of the blocks.

    I like the dark to the outside, but I'd really like to see a narrow dark brown frame first, then the border with the dark to the outside.

    I like the way narrow dark frames stop the eye and mind from wandering and contain the colors of the quilt.

    They're both beautiful!

    For some reason I prefer the dark border closer to the quilt - it's really pleasing to the eye!

    Brown side in, it lets the blue finish off the quilt, frames it better.

    I think I like the second picture. Usually I like the darker on the outside as well but I just like the brown closer in.
