    Just finished the top yesterday. Now I need ideas for the border. Since it's so busy I believe a tone on tone would be better but I'm not sure about what colors to use. I'm thinking maybe a beige with red or black binding. Any suggestions?

    Love the fabrics in this fabulous quilt! Black with a red binding is what comes to my thoughts. Hope you share another picture when you complete it. Thanks for sharing.

    It needs a narrow black border to contain all that color, then the wider border of your choice. I like the red, tan, black or brown prints in the quilt.

    love it. If you have it, that browm would be perfect as a border. Black with red binding would work well too.

    I ordered the greyhound fabric from hotdiggitydog.com. They have all different dog and cat breeds and other animal fabric. The paw print and bones fabric I bought at JoAnn's about 3 years ago. (They still have the fabric - ask me how I know). The brown/black fabric I got at my LQS.

    I think a simple black border with a cream or tan binding. :)
