    I like the border on the blue, but the solid corner stones are bugging me. I think you should do a triangle in each corner stone so it connects them.
    I agree with the idea of a triangle to make the connection and I would add a plain border to isolate the ears from the border you draw here. Oh... and very nice quilts!!

    I agree. They are both beautiful quilts.
    Here's a link for Quilters Cache and this pattern would be good also and just use the "X" block for the corners minus the line on the outside triangle. http://www.quilterscache.com/C/CrossoversBorder.html

    This link might give a better idea as to how to do the corners using this border design.

    I once made a fish border around a cat quilt. It looked like a diamond and a half diamond in a row. Looked cute.

    I really like that. Sometimes that pattern can look so busy, but you've included enough background that it lets the cats stand out. Nice job!
