im going to make a doona/comforter cover for a double bed, the fabric i want to use is 120cm wide and ive got 15m of it. but i dont want to attatch 2 panels with a seam to get the right width, i was thinking of framing a central panel but im lost for what colour i should use... should i just use black but put a band of colour around the patternd fabric?

this is the fabric

I think black would be a good pick since the background is black-any way you can do a mock-up with some smaller pieces to see what it will look like? Of course, you should take into account the rest of the room's decor as well. If you have a room with a lot of light furniture and carpet, maybe red or green would be better.

It might look nice to do a thin red border immediately surrounding the central panel, with a black border around that, much thicker.

Ooh yeah, I like the idea of bordering with 2 colors as well.
