Well, at first I liked the hardest one--the one on the right with the teeny-tiny dots. But, I like option three. I didn't like the striped, I thought it distracted my eye. Which ever you choose, it is going to be wonderful!

Thanks for your input. It looks like it will probably be option 3. I will get the chance to do those circles on my Christmas BOM so won't get out of making them anyway. This quilt needs to be finished this month and possibly quilted too. Today I decided to get some major organizing done. I usually do that in January but would like to get a head start this year. And I'm thinking it's time to start selling some of my quilts that have overtaken the closets. That's what I may be doing in January if I have the time to take pictures and get them posted. The pricing is what will be hard for me. I'm not planning on adding any new quilts to my list for awhile unless they are work related so won't be doing the 2012 BOM. But I will still enjoy seeing what everyone else is doing with theirs.

Annis, they are all amazing. I vote for the border on the right in the first picture. It gives the eye a place to rest and is a good "container" border as I call it. Could you embroider the circles instead of applique? I have no doubt that whatever you do will be wonderful! geneva

I think I like the last option best, but it looks like any one of them is going to work beautifully!

Annis all three are amazing! But if I had to choose I would go for photo 1, right side with the little circles. IMHO. Rita. :D

Option 3. I would still have to piece it but wouldn't have to make the circles, and I would be able to use the green for the binding along with a crumb catcher or piping. I have a little time yet to make up my mind. I've got some hand sewing to do on the binding for my sister's quilt and several quilt labels that have to be finished first.

Annis, wow, either one would be a winner. I like the one on the right because it is more subdued and shows off the swag border more.
