    I got several of these fabrics in Williams, AZ a couple years ago and decided to do an asymmetrical fussy cut design (what seemed to fit). My question is, should I add a border or leave it as-is? I have a dark brown in the quilt top that I plan to use for the binding too.

    And, does anyone have a suggestion for a title? It's 36x56 now, not quite big enough for a lap quilt but looks nice on my design wall.

    Thanks for your help!

    I think a border would 'finish' it -maybe pick up the deep green?

    border in a right color will make everything POP but it's beautiful as is.

    "Los Lobos" or "Call of the Wild" maybe grey/dark grey would be a good border.

    I'd try a boarder to see what it does. I would try the material that surrounds the second wolf at the top. It appears either purple or black in the photo.

    I love the wolves print. And think a border would look great. With the border it would bring your eyes into all the great fussy cuts you did.

    As for the name it makes me think of call of the wild. How about "A wild afternoon"

    Well I was going to suggest The Call of the Wild, but see it's already been suggested. I think a narrow rust border, then a little wider green & bind with the brown would look great.

    How about a cream inner border and then a larger outside border in a darker color - green or grey?
