    I really like the border on the blue one. It kind of reminds me of the movement in cat's tails. I'd go for it!

    Thanks everyone for all the links and advice on the border options! I like the fish border idea a lot (I was originally thinking about mice, but I couldn't find an easy/quick basic pattern) and am also playing with connecting the corners as suggested.

    To everyone who asked, here is a link to the pdf of the original pattern, called Kool Kats Kwilt and made by Patti Carey.

    The blue one I did in EQ7, I will be happy to send out the PJ7 file to anyone interested.

    I love both of them, but especially the blue one. Agree with a triangle on the corner blocks to bring them together.

    Played around with the ideas proposed and now I have a couple great options! Its going to be tough to decide which one... although I'm leaning towards the fishies because I intend this quilt to go to a little girl who has leukemia.

    A great big YES from me. They are both great, and I really love the blue one and the border too! Leave it like that. It is just beautiful!!!
    Wow, you added more borders, but I still like the first one best. But, doggone it, since it is your quilt, I guess you will choose. You do nice work. Congratulations.

    If you're taking votes, mine is for the fishies. It's a little less busy, and you could embellish with small crystals/rhinestones for an eye on each fish (depending on how old the girl is - certain ages like a little bling). Just a few random thoughts. These look really great and she is going to love her blanket no matter which design you go with.
