    this top is 37x42, I would like to add a 8" border.
    What do y'all think about my choices? Or should I use the dots from the sashing?

    I like the one on the left best. It does not draw your eyes away from the cats as the one on the right does. The left one works very well and ties it all together.

    Neat Quilt!

    Good choice of fabric for a great looking quilt. I like the circles on the left best.

    CUTE quilt!!! I like both border fabrics, but I think the left one does more for the quilt. The right one drew my eyes to the border, not the cutey pie cats!

    For this quilt, I prefer the one on the left. The right distracts too much from the quilt. I love the quilt! The kitty faces are wonderful!

    i like the subtler one better. i think the brighter one draws attention away from your adorable cats

    I think the one on the right give some "pizazz" to the quilt. I like bold and bright and funky,.

    The one one the right is a great fabric, but it "pops out" too much and detracts from your cats. The one on the left plays on the sashing and coordinates better. Then, maybe a small red binding (or whatever colour you would like to use as an accent from your cats).

    I like the one on the right the best. I think it accentuates the zaniness of the cats.
