    I need input on a border please

    I used a panel today and made up this quilt, as seen on a benatex ad in a quilt magazine. the magazine shows the freestyle log cabin continued after the black trim. WWYD? I am thinking maybe a piano key border? or just leave it?
    thanks for any ideas or input.

    that is very cute indeed. a piano border sounds good. just depends on how large you need it to be.

    I think black would really highlight you cats & flower backgrounds.

    I think that a piano key border would look nice after the black border.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    I, too, think a piano key board would look great. Be sure to show us how it finished. Also, I bought a panel of cats and then had no idea what to do with them. Thanks for the idea.

    Very cute top. I would at least use a dark border then do a piano key border using some of the fabric from the blocks.

    I think the black skinny boarder with the piano keys would look lovely

    Keep in mind I'm still fairly new to quilting...

    But I think something done on the bias for a border would add a nice punch.
    Dark or black fabric would balance it all nicely.

    **Love the quilt. Be sure to let us know when you've finished it. We want to see!!
