    I am trying to decide between the dark brown on the left side and the black with stars on the right side. After the dark border comes the pink border which will have an embroidered saying on it and then a 6 1/2" off white border which will have applique on it. Then I am not sure after that...still thinking. This is the quilt that some of you talked me into prewashing my fabric first which I never usually do. Thanks for helping me decide.

    I like the one on the right, with the dots. It pops more to me

    I think I would go for the dark brown. The quilt top looks very lovely. Yummy, like chocolate covered cherries.

    I vote for the left side. The quilt should pop, not the border IMHO.

    left side border goes with the fabrics in the quilt better.

    Personally I would use the right side because it pops more BUT if YOU want the quilt to stand out more use the left.

    Personally I like my borders bright.

    My vote goes to the left. It disappears and draws my eyes to your lovely quilt.

    Pretty quilt :D:D:D
    I think the one on the right is a bit busy and I notice it more than the quilt itself...
