Calico Wedges auditioning borders.... what do you like?

So I am up to the outer border of my Calico Wedges quilt, designed by Kerry Swain!  Totally loving is so far, but, I just cant decide on what I want for the outer.  The original had a full Dresden in each corner, but I wanted mine a little fancier.  I purchased some brown to add on a little border first, but it didn't look right, so these are my choices:

NUMBER 1:

NUMBER 2:

NUMBER 3:

NUMBER 4:
 
I would REALLY love some input here?  1, 2, 3 or 4?  I was hoping to work on it today, but I am stuck!  I have a favourite, Hubby has a different favourite and so does Mum...... HELP!

I like number 2 ... but they will all look great. Happy choosing.

Marls said...

Hard to pick which is best as they all work but i thnk it is No 1 for me. Good luck with your choosing.

Susan said...

Whatever you choose it will be a beautiful quilt in the end. I would choose number 1, the little bit of cream between the blocks and the Dresden is like another border and frames the inside square. Have fun deciding.

Annette said...

I luved No 2 then saw No 4. But do agree with what Susan said. Look forward to seeing the outcome. Take care

Hi Sarah
I like number 2 layout. Which one do you like best?

Lyn said...

Hi Sarah
I like the bit of cream before the dresdens in no 1 but I like the way the dresdens are positioned in no 2 with the straight edge facing in and the curve to the outside..

I like number one I agree with the other posters, the cream space sets off both the fans and the centre.

Susan said...

#2 - it might be the "safe" option but I like they way the half dresdens fit the edge of the inside part of the quilt...decisions decisions

Vicki said...

Okay, dont know which one is your fave but I prefer 1! Hope you get a solution you're happy with

Noela said...

I like Number 1 but also like the full dresden in the corner of 4. Hugs...

Lib said...

I prefer no 1, Sarah. Whatever you choose will look fantastic.

Lynda said...

No 2.

Sarah,
I know we are all different, that is why you asked and I would go for either 1 or 3, I actually dislike how the corners are cut off in #4 and I really like the space between last border and dresdens, it diffines them more, anyway, think i am leaning more to #3.
Love the colours BTW :o)
