Default Which border should I choose

Thanks to Rhonda, I figured out how to get a pic of my quilt top loaded as a single block so I could then use that to audition different pieced borders. I couldn't re-create this quilt top in EQ7 - it had to be done with a photo of the top. Thanks Rhonda! So ... which border do we like the best. BTW - I know the one with the flying geese has different size geese, I'm not worried about that. I'm just looking for what scheme looks the best.

None of them, they all detract from the quilt. Use a medium sized floral instead. Or black (like background) with accents of the darkest red/pink.

First or third. I think the third one has more pizazz.

I like the third one, think the darker edge keeps the border from competing with the center

I like #3 the best, but I also agree with yourstrulyquilts, it seems to distract from the gorgeous center.

I definitely like a border with the black, so the 3rd one. Though I do agree that it has the potential to detract from the quilt

I like three better, however I have to go along with the others that they all distract from your beautiful center.
