    I like the prarie points, but not the wide border. Too plain. Maybe the prairie points off the first small green only.

    I like option #2. I like the prarie points. You might review having the outside border in the green to be wider than you show in your picture posted. If you have enough fabric. I personally like the final outside border (third) being the widest. I like your colorful quilt and it appears that the green will set off the rest of the quilt quite nicely.

    Good luck and keep us posted.
