    I vote for C. The blue border really brings the quilt all together and it looks so rich! I think all are beautiful but I really love C. Good luck and maybe you can post a pic of the finished quilt. Would love to see it!

    I vote for C. The dark outer borders give the quilt a stopping point and bring your eye back to the inside. At least IMHO.

    I prefer the darker border. Not a fan of the color choices, but the design is fabulous.

    I like c. The darker border is more striking to me.
    I don't want to brag but I can still fit into the earrings I wore in high school.

    How would you do it? The colors are navy Blue, grey and cranberry (cranberry is only on the groom) Brides maides are in navy blue, and the groomsmen are all in grey and navy. the design is set as that is what the customer wants....but the colors I can move around/change as long as they represent the wedding colors described.

    Thanks

    I prefer C. Next to C, the others look a bit "blah" to me.

    I, too, like the darker outside border of #3. But the white inside border on #2 makes it really pop. Maybe a very narrow cranberry border somewhere in there would help. What type of binding do you plan to use? Maybe you could piece the center first then when its done lay strips around it to see what you prefer for the borders and binding.

    I like B the best because of the white inner border. To my eye it makes the quilt look as if you are looking through a trellis at the squares behind. It's a neat visual effect.

    I like B. The light color inner border really works to me. I might try a blue outer border rather than the gray and see how that looked too.
