Undecided

I need help! (Most people who know me would agree with that, in a highly sarcastic tone of voice to boot.)
I just couldn't wait to make my queen sized Rouenneries quilt, so I broke down this week and cranked out a wall hanging made out of 2 charm packs. I used the pearl linen/cotton blend for the setting, but now I'm totally in a quandry as to which fabric to use on the outer border.
Opinions are extremely welcome!
Option one - Red floral:
Option 2 - Gray border:
Option 3 - Tan border:
Option 4 - Block Print border:

Girlfriend...I like the red border. Adds a bold punch to your design and frames the whole quilt well.

for what it's worth (probably not much, because i know how much you value my opinion on things i know nothing about ) ... i like option #3 the best and option #4 after that.

oh hey ... blogger edited out my witty banter inside the parens! let's pretend that my comment actually has "...fabric, quilting, all things crafty..." included after "things i know nothing about" ...

I like the red border!

I really like option 1, my second choice would be option 4.

I like the red one. But your floor makes a fantastic inner border!

I think you need a tiny flange of the red floral, and then the tan border (option 3). It looks beautiful!

We were just talking about me being too scared to cut mine into tiny pieces...your so brave, now maybe I'll do mine:)I like #1 or #1 as a small border and then#4.

Wow you did cut it up into tiny pieces. You need the red border to pull it together with the plain edge against the squares, just my opinion.

I vote for thin inner border in red and then see which of the other border options works with that.

Looks really great so far. I have a Rouenneries jelly roll that has been calling my name. Love this fabric line.
