Border Auditions

I've been in the process this week of trying to figure out what direction to go with this quilt.  First I tried this fat blue/thin black border idea.

Next I tried a warmer toned fat border.

Then I auditioned the addition of a border that is the same style as the inner sashing strips.

Then paired that with a fat blue border.

And finally, I auditioned a light green fat border. 

The last option was my favorite and I proceeded to add the sashing strips to the quilt and then came to a screeching halt.  I don't think I have enough of the light green fabric to do all four borders.  I will check again and see if I can make it work or I might have to move on to plan B.  I'm not sure yet what plan B is, but hopefully I won't need it.
