    I am trying to make a small quilt for a cat. Do these two borders look okay? The focus fabric is sort of whimsical, and this border arrangement makes it look serious.

    The border choice is perfect. Anything else wouldn't look as sharp.

    Oh, it is for a cat, a cat lover's cat. I made one for a friend's cat, and suddenly all my cat lovers want one for their cats. :) It is a good way to play with a block. I just figured out....with a lot of help from folks here...how to get my focus fabric to all be "facing the same way."

    I am glad to know I am not alone!! I make quilt for all my dogs and then when they had puppies, all puppies left with their own quilt and the scent of their litter mates. My oldest dog (12) carries her quilt to bed at night!!

    Also, love the borders on there!

    Yes, the black border makes the black blocks stand out and emphasizes the colors. Wouldn't change it. Makes for a nice frame for the quilt too. Nice Job!

    if any cat tells you they don't like it, send them to the pound.
