Border Patrol

I've been auditioning borders on and off for awhile now - who would ever guess how much time goes into each decision? Every time I choose a different fabric it must relate to the whole - value, colour, pattern and gut feeling all come into consideration, as well as leading the eye around the piece. And there is also the decision of length for each piece because where they adjoin another piece creates a visual line. I haven't sewn this combination of border pieces yet - I will let it sit for a bit, although right now it's feeling pretty 'right'.
