    Need Help choosing border

    I have attached 3 pictures. First one has a stripe and blue blend (which is also in the quilt). The second one has a neutral with a vine print. The 3rd picture has all 3 of them laid across the center of the quilt. I can attach the stripe going either vertical or horizontal. The quilt is for a man and has some wildlife in it-ducks, dogs, camp equip. Cannot decide which one if any would be good. Thanks for your opinions.

    My DH says the stripe is too busy. He likes the tan.

    I like the stripe best but the others look good too. That just my 2 cents worth!

    I'd do the beige after the brown and then cut your binding out of the stripe, but at a slight tilt so it looks like its running around the edge of your quilt. Lovely quilt!

    First of all, I love your quilt, and I really like the first picture with the horizontal stripe next to the dark brown. The stripe just looks like it was meant to be there, and it also adds pizazz. IMHO

    Stripes! Or Blue, but tan seems too light to end it by being a border!

    I would also use the horizontal stripe border next to the dark brown thin border in #1. It makes for a striking finish to your beautiful quilt.
