I Need Your Opinion

I am trying to decide which border fabric to use on my controlled-scrappy quilt.  Which one would you choose?  The size of the border is approximately what is showing.
Border one:
Border two:
Border three:
Border four:

I vote for border 2 or 3. 4 hurts my eyes.

Lori said...

I like #2 But they all would work. I think its the variation in the size in the pattern I like.

Michele said...

I like Border 2 the best.

Jeann of Melton said...

Border 4 is too dominant and takes away from the main part of the quilt. Border 3 is too 'twirly' and 'nah' for Border 2 . But, Border 1 is just right!

Lourdes said...

My vote is for #2

Linda said...

My vote is for #2. It is attractive yet doesn't draw your eyes away from the beautiful quilt. I like the "gentleness" of the look.

Nancy L said...

I like 3 first than # 1.

Nancy L said...

I like 3 best than #1. I agree that 4 hurts my eyes.

either 2 or 3 I like 2 a little more than 3 but it is a little more girly. good luck.

i agree with podunk, but think 4 would be a pretty binding. i absolutely love the quilt pattern, i tracked it down to november of 2012 post and LOVE the ribbon border soooo much! it makes the quilt i think. would you share your pattern?

Nann said...

#2 or #3....which I decided before I read the previous blog comment! Both have a good balance of white-to-black. #1 is too black. #4 is too "op-art," and jarring.

Border number 2 because it has some motion to it but not so aggressive as to be taking away your attention from the quilt itself. Kathy Aho

Hello,

I like border 2 or 3... Great job on quilt!!!!

Linda said...

I like 3 first, then 1. Number 4 is way too busy.

I think border #2 is best. The other 3 choices are too busy for my likings and I am not a girlie girl either.

Beth Strand said...

I love #3!

My Choice is #1

Sharon said...

I like border 2 best but could be happy with #3. I really disliked #4

Linda said...

So --Did I miss which one you chose?

Sandy Keith said...

I like border 2. The rest are too busy.

Farm Quilter said...

#2 IS THE WINNER!!! Thank you so much for your input!!

Eileen S said...

Late.....glad you chose #2. #3 would have been my second choice. #4 made me a little dizzy. :)

Diana said...

Would love to see the finished quilt. I would have picked 2 as well. Beautiful
