    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

    Very clever! I think both your borders look great!

    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!
    People who start projects and never finish them are cooler
    than people who never start projects at all.
