    I've laid it out with different options but can't decide how it would look best. Any suggestions?

    I vote for the red only, it goes with your little red ones. Too much going on with the other borders.

    I vote the red too, but I just love the crows & cherries fabric. That is too cute!

    DITTOES! With the red border, my eyes started focusing on the blocks right away. The quilt looks completed with the red, with the others, I keep thinking ... what's next?
    as in - - you would need another border! (in my humble opinion)

    I'll have to go with the red, but I like the crows and cherries also.

    I would use the red , it brings your eye's right to the body of the quilt.

    I like the third, it balances the sashing.

    I would do a narrow red border and follow it with the striped outer border.

    I like the 3rd that matches the sashing. I think it will give it a nice completed look. Then I would use the stripe and perhaps a red binding.

    How would it look with the the sashing like third photo (looks completed to me) and then a red border?

    My vote is for One or Three. Too much going on in blocks to have a busy border. Sure is a cute, bright, and happy quilt. :-)

    Have you tried a variation on #3...swapping out the stripe for the red?

    Red only border, others are too busy, IMO!
