    So here is my latest, cant decide if i need another border.
    What do you think?
    These are just materials I have, If theres good ideas for another color i can get something else.
    does it need a border?
    Thanks to all my quilting friends I know I will get an honest answer!!

    I don't think it needs a border but....
    If you do go there I would suggest using a thin strip of the solid gold fabric and then a wider strip of the plaid or the dotted material if you have any of that.

    Ohhh...I love both fabrics! I really love the 2nd one (plaid) and it still looks cutsie! The little kitty cat fabrics are just to die for! Gorgeous. Both fabrics are lovely but I prefer the second and then the 1st for binding. Love your quilt! :-D

    I like the plaid, but before I saw your choices, I was thinking that something darker would look nice, like a narrow dark brown and then a rust to pick up the colour in the kitties.

    How thin a strip?? Maybe 2 1/2 or 3 inches??
    I think that could work. (and would use up my lefteover fabric :D )

    I think that it is perfect just the way it is. The simple layout really shows off the kittens. :thumbup:

    No suggestion for a border I think the quilt is beautiful as is. Love it. If I was going to add a border I too vote for the plaid.

    I like it just the way it is! But if you do decide on a border, I like #1 best.

    That's really cute. I don't think it needs another border, but I do like Dragonfly's suggestion also. It's your quilt, do it the way you like it best.

    I agree with this statement made by someone earlier.
