    can not decide which border

    I know that I can not post 3 pictures at once, so I will post them seperately, 1,2,3

    appreciate any input

    I just thought of something....Pin one border on one side, then pin the other choice on the other side. Hang it up for a couple of days & see which one grabs you the most. I've had to walk away from a quilt & do that a couple times & I'm glad I did. I've also learned to go with my first instinct & not always someone elses!

    I like the white.. alot. It makes a nice definition and ties nicely to the white in the quilt.

    I think white border instead of green. I would then put the green, then the floral. Just my opinion.

    It's so pretty, I'm sure whatever you choose for your borders will look lovely.

    thank you for your suggestions, I will be looking at it for a day or so ........, the reason I am trying to add a 2 or even 3rd narrow border to make the quilt bigger, but since it is a square quilt it really does not matter it will not be big enough for a full size bed anyway. will most likely give it to one of the kids in the family.

    thank you again

    I would do green, then floral and bind with gold! So many good choices. They are all great...just a matter of preference.

    I'll suggest that you have the green or gold next to the center and then scrappy and then green or gold and the wider floral on the outside.
    I do not like the white as a border...that's just my opinion.
    If that scrappy border is already attached, then I prefer pic #1.
