In a bit of a pickle...

I am stuck.

I got one border left to put on the first heart quilt but I am going to leave it for a while since it has been troubling me a bit. I thought I'd make a start on the second heart but that's the problem. I know which patterns to use but, and this is a big but, what size and what colours to use? I have done 3 colour ways in various sizes and none sing to me when I lay them out next to the heart.... They just look limp and not connected to the centre heart at all. It doesn't even help when I lay out the borders I am going to have around the heart, which really REALLY look nice.

So, I love the second heart to bits and the borders I am going to sew around really really enhance it even further so what is wrong with the stupid blocks!? I am going to go sulk now and stare at it for a while and see if I have an epiphany.
