Marcelle Medallion Quilt Border 3... I need Your Opinion!

My Marcelle Medallion quilt is coming right along.  I easily added the first border without much contemplation on fabric choice.
I took this picture with my phone so it's a little blurry.

 I struggled a little bit with what fabrics to use for the triangle border though.  I needed to decide if i wanted a total scrappy look and dive into my fabric scraps or more of a unified look.

Since i just loved the color scheme so far, i went with the unified look.  Sadly :( i don't have many low volume (light colored) fabrics so i went with the lighter colors of Pearl Bracelet fabric line and hoped they wouldn't turn out too bright.  Shelburne Falls turned out to have the perfect colors for what i had so far.

 I stayed up too late to finish piecing.  And even though it was late (i started late to begin with) it went really fast.

And i LOVE how it turned out!  

Now on to the next border and this is where i need some help.  I'm auditioning borders.  The further you get along on this quilt the more fabric is required.  Most of my stash is fat quarters and i need at least a 24" length. I had to find some longer pieces.  Here is what i came up with...



I have two that i'm leaning towards but would love some opinions on this!
  PLEASE comment on which you would pick if it were yours. 


  1. This is so pretty! Your choice of the low-volume pearl bracelets in the border is a fabulous choice. After scrolling up and down on my computer screen, my vote is for #1. I think the others are maybe just a little too bright. My second choice would be #3.

  2. #2 is my favorite with #1 as a close second!

  3. I personally would go with #1 or #4. Definitely not #2 -- it's too bright, I think.

  4. I like #3 the most its looking really beautiful so far


Thank you for your comment. They are so important to me and it's nice to know there is someone out there who is interested in similar things. I will do my best to respond to each one. Have a great day!
