    Help Choosing Inner Border for Trip Around the World

    Would you ladies mind helping me choose the inner border for my Trip Around the World quilt? It's just about ready for them to be added. Option 2 is a light marbled yellow but is a bit darker than it appears in the photo. Thanks.

    I like the green. It is more soothing. The yellows are too bright imho

    I like the dark yellow and the green. Both are very nice, but I think the light is to washed out.

    I like the darker gold for the inner border, and the green for the binding.
    It's not the destination, it's the journey.

    Me, too. I think it really adds a spark & brings out the purple better/more.

    Ditto. This was my first thought, then thought that maybe that was too much purple.Then again can you have too much purple, violet? Very pretty quilt look forward to seeing finished quilt. BrendaK

    IMHO, the darker yellow works the best. The green is OK too. Repeating the purple would not give enough contrast. I think this will be a very cheerful quilt.

    They all look nice but my personal preference is the gold. I think it depends on what you want the "feel" of the quilt to be. This is a very pretty quilt.
