    What a great question and the answers were fantastic. I went over to Amazon and bought one of the books ckcowl recommended. I'm actually enthusiastic about this!!!

    :)

    Especially since I've been starting to draft my own patterns.

    Oh and here's another idea. Look at quilt blocks! Some of them make great borders on their own. Think about putting a small block on point for accent border. A small 4 patch, flying geese, log cabin, etc. Border can be what ever you want it to be.

    This one is my favorite border, although after you asked, I went looking and discovered that most of my quilts don't have borders!

    Check out the round robins and you'll find lots of borders. Here is a link to the finished quilts in IRR-II in 2010. You will see lots of different borders and they're magnificent.

    I just love the cat quilt with the paws on the border. What pattern did you use for the cats?

    Quilt University offers a free sample class that is about borders. You might want to take that for some ideas, too. http://www.quiltuniversity.com/registrar_free.htm

    I just discovered a brick border; love it! Here's a link: http://tlc.howstuffworks.com/home/br...er-pattern.htm
    As a note, I made my bricks 4.5", 5.5", & 6.5". It was super easy.
