Which one do you think?

I really wanted the green to be the inside border, but it just looks kind of flat to me. The red of course looks great. But...does it look great just because it is a stronger color? Maybe this top needs to be more subtle. Not everything needs to be in your face.
I just can't decide. HELP!
I already have one vote red (my oldest son) but he started out liking the green most.

When I held my hand over the green and looked at the red, then did the same with the opposite side, I liked the red better. I think that it brings out the other red in the quilt. I don't see as much of the same color of green in the quilt as in the binding and it seems washed out to me. That's only my 2 cents though.

I like the real "brightness" of the darker red better as well. I think if it were a brighter or darker green, it might work. What about a bright orange? There appears to be some in the quilt but not a lot, so it would make a nice inner border.
