Think you need a stop strip first to contain the kaleidoscopes.....one of the darker tones in a narrow strip. Then go for the fabric on the left! It carries the center design element out to the edge and just works! But it gets lost when placed directly next to the busy center. Separate them to let both shine!
I like the fabric on the left because I think it needs to be a busy print rather than a solid look. Maybe a stop border of the same color green as the background in that print or a med-dark tan.
I like the fabric on the left - a lot. I agree that you need a stop border (perhaps one of the greens on the right side or another fabric that makes you happy).
Got to agree with Debbie, a dark narrow border then the fabric on the left was what came to my mind also. Sometimes deciding on the border is more time consuming that the rest of the quilt! Elaine (England)
Me, too! I like the one on the LEFT - LOL - but I don't think it needs a stop border. I would let the "busy" flow right into the border - ;))
It's a wonderful version of 'organised chaos'! I too, prefer the fabric on the left, it really continues the flow of the centre and is the perfect colour without dominating! Good luck deciding!
I'm joining in with the vote for the fabric on the left and I think a narrow darker inner border would be just the thing!The circles on the proposed border, LH side, echo the circles created in your kaleidoscope.
I really liked the look of this quilt without any borders (in your post several days ago). If you really want a border to make the quilt larger, I'd use a fairly subdued print in one of the darkest or brightest colors in the quilt. That dark border (or even binding) seems to hold all the "busy-ness" in. I really like this quilt!
I like the one on the left. It looks like it goes with all of your fabrics, while the others look almost boring next to those fun fabrics.
I agree with Wanda. I think a buys print will work best and of these 3 options I like the one on the left.
