Borders - which one do you think is best?

Option 1
I'm to the last border and once I got it on the design wall, I really wasn't very pleased.  I'm going with the the log cabins, at this point it's really not an option to change, not enough material for a different border.   So what do you think Option 1, 2, 3 or something entirely different (utilizing the log cabin blocks of course).    In the house we are pretty much divided.   I think I know which way I'm going but just wondering if anyone had any thoughts or suggestions.  The quilt is very angular and curvy until you get to the log cabins, then it's right angles   and they some how seem out of place to me.  Hmmm going to have to think about this one for a while.
Option 2 
Option 3


  1. at first i was leaning towards #2 but after thinking about it, I would go #1, #2 #3 in that order. I think the blue looks more majestic in #1 and borders the piece well. JMHO- cw

  2. Since I like darker colors on the outside edge, I pick Option 3. Option 1 is my second choice. I'm sure which ever you choose, your quilt will be awesome!!

  3. I like the first one - carries the design thru the quilt as well as gives that 'water center' to the mariner compass .

  4. I like #3, so I'm sure that helps a lot -- LOL! Don't really have a good reason for my choice, maybe just prefer the dark on the outside. It's gonna be awesome, no matter which one you choose.

  5. I like option 1 the best.. It seems to hold frame the quilt the best. Hold it all in.. does that make sense? That was the feeling that I got from that one.

  6. I love option 1! I like the others, but I like the way the blue frames the quilts and the corners of 1 best. Beautiful quilt.


I would love to hear from you, comments and questions welcome!
