Quilt decisions

Home from my trip and life is back to as normal as it ever is. My big event today is deciding which color sashing to do on my fall colors quilt. Opinions?

The pattern on the dark might be a little too linear. But it is so beautiful, and the colors make you want to snuggle under it with a cup of tea and a good book, and listen to the leaves blow.

The light, leafy print looks better than it photographed here. The scattering of leaves is subtle and is thematically perfect. Instead of reminding you of quiet nights inside, it makes you think of walking outside under a bright sky, white from clouds covering the blue and acting as a giant diffuser.

Then there is the option of combining the two, with small squares of one color where all the corners meet to add interest. But which should be the main color? Once again I am so busy seeing both sides of an argument that I am unable to make a decision.
