Red face Blue Angels need help with borders

I am suffering from brain fog and need your advice. This is a quilt for my other DSIL and it is a work that started one way and through talking to me (you know how that is :-) has ended up with the green sashing w/blue cornerstones to add some color and it matches the border fabric. I think the white background in the blocks is throwing me off. Here are four borders thoughts which do you like best?
I appreciate your talents and expertise! Thank you so much

I love the blues that are in this quilt..they have such a rich look..

I like the third pic...blue.....but narrower size, green dot...maybe a bit wider and then floral.

I really like that dark green dot fabric, I wish my LQS carried it. As far as your borders, I think I like the last pic the best. The narrow gold fabric brings life to the whole quilt, and is framed nicely by the darker fabrics to either side! It's going to be gorgeous whichever one you choose!
