    I would put the second brown boarder on, I would be tempted to make it a bit thicker.

    Scratch this post, I just noticed another thread where you already added the border and are sending it to the quilter. Great decision because it looks excellent!

    I agree with a brown border on the outside edge. It is much easier to quilt and add the binding with the flat surface. :thumbup:

    I like the way the two brown borders frame the pieced border, and it will definitely be easier to sew on the binding with a solid piece.

    I vote for the outside brown border. It really finishes it.

    I agree with the extra border. It sort of finishes it of. (My idea though)
