    I'm ready to put this together but would like your opinions on what version you like best.

    I prefer the royal blue inner border. The red one kind of gets lost in the braid.

    I like the second one better, it seems to "flow" more.

    I would complete the middle before it gets any larger. I do some machine applique and decorative quilting, ect and the smaller the piece is, the easier it moves across the bed of the machine. Having said that I have machine quilted a queen size quilt with feather wreaths on my domestic Bernina with a 7" throat. Once, never to be done by me again.

    I like the blue inner border the best.

    Personally, the blue. But both would look fine.

    I like the first one also. The blue frames the middle nicely.

    Yes I do want to get the horses on before I put it all together..thanks for the tip! I'm nervous about that part anyway. The blue is what i had picked and then I started second guessing myself.

    I like the blue and wouldn't add another pieced border to the braid. If I did another border I would do a solid or a soft print.

    Blue is the best. The red does get lost.

    do you mean the blue and brown blocks? They're the signature blocks.....after those I will add the binding.

    I agree. Two pieced borders will detract from the inner design.

    I agree that the red blends in with the braid and doesn't act as a separator. The blue looks better.

    This sure is the place for opinions! :D

    Oh, well, yeah I did mean those. I didn't realize they were going to be signature blocks in this quilt :) Sorry!!!

    okay been doing a bit of playing around and will be posting a new pic soon. The signature blocks are changing as I agree they are too busy. I have some green that goes with this that I think if I do the sig blocks and the outer cornerstone blocks out of it will bring it all together. Thanks ya'll!

    I would finish the main picture first to see if it goes with your borders. The two borders don't give my eyes a place to rest.
    I like the red as it gives the main body a transition. Would you consider using black?

    I like the red. It looks more like a cowgirl type quilt.

    I like the blue inner border. The double pieced border may take away from the center of the quilt. Please post when you decide and complete. Thanks

    The blue border as inner and only one braided border. The last one distracts. If you need another border, something simple and solid.

    Another agreement to this. Def. the blue on the inside.

    I like the blue as the inner, it makes the sky more vibrant.

    I like the blue inner border best. The red border doesn't add enough contrast against the center picture.
