    I'm working on wall hangings for my sisters in law and me and I'm almost to the last borders. I got this great border stripe to use but I don't think I like it. I think I should go look for something else. I think it's too busy and fights with the seashell print.

    What do you all think?

    Stand back and look at it. I thought it was a little busy in the first two pictures, but I like it in the last one :D:D:D

    Pull that last one out a little farther to get the plain section in there also and that will be nice.

    I like the last one if you turn it so the teal is on the outside

    What if you flip the blue/green around so that the plain area is closest to the center?

    If I had to pick I would sat the last one. Otherwise I would look for something else cause I can see the difference in the shade of blues on the main section and the border and it makes it look off.

    What if you flipped the solid and pattern green so the solid is next to the beige in the 3rd one?

    I like it and it frames your work beautifully!

    I found a whole different option. I think I may really like this one. The design on the fabric is actually ocean waves and I think that ties it to the shell fabric and it doesn't seem to fight with the green or blue.

    When you stand back an look at it it looks great. But I also think just the (2) plain borders look good to..The dark orange and dark blue..

    I really like the first one. But, you could put the orange on the outside. What were you planning to use as the binding?

    I like the last one. I don't think it competes because the pattern is kinda "shell like" :) I think it sets it off nicely.

    Honestly I'm not sure about the last pic. I think I like the blue, green better than this last one.
