I completely agree - l'm not feeling the umbrellas at all.

I would use the blue as a first small border then brown big border. I don't think the umbrella one fits this quilt. IMHO

I think this also, but would start with a narrow white border, then blue, then brown.

I agree!! Blue first then brown!! I like umbrellas but not for top. I agree again--if you use it , use it on the back!

If you want 3 borders, and have enough fabric.... I think it would look great to do a brown inner border, blue middle border, and brown larger outer border. Just a suggestion

How about all three. Narrow brown, wide umbrella and bind with the turquoise.

Me too, blue first then brown. Umbrellas would look fun on the backing. Great job on the friendship stars!!
