    I am finishing this wildlife quilt up for a Christmas present. I have been indecisive about this for a while and today am going to finish it up regardless, I hope. My quandary is: The bear paw patches on either side, do they need to be framed in a darker cloth like the one on the right and if so does the border need to be smaller or larger, or is that too bold and it needs to blend in like the one on the left so as to not distract from the center? I have opinions supporting both, but visually what do YOU think? It is all done except for possibly another black border on top and bottom. Yeah! I would appreciate your opinions. Thank you.

    I like the one that is framed on the right of the picture best. The sizing seems great to me. Thanks for letting me put me little two cents worth in on your lovely quilt.

    The boarder around the bear paw helps it to show up ...I personally would add the boarder

    I like the one on the right, with the border around it just the way it is. By the way.........your quilt is beautiful!

    I like the one on the right with the border. I don't think it competes with the center, but allows each element to shine. Great job.
