Tying Up Some Loose Ends

Recently, while cleaning out the storage bins, these blocks were found in the bottom.  What to do with all these loose blocks that have no rhythm or reason for being there--most likely from an exchange in another life.  The blocks needed to come to some fruition for a good purpose and hence, here is what we did in the sewing room.
These bear paw blocks measured 6.5".

As did these nine patch blocks.

And one lonely heart block...............
Even though we had several bear paw blocks, only four were needed.
The blocks for this top measured 4.5" and included several paper pieced blocks that were received in a block exchange in early 1990's.  Boy, that seems like yesterday but to figure it was over 15 years ago--these blocks are sufficiently aged!!
The dilemma--how to finish these center blocks?  What would look good as borders?  Solid colors?  Bright colors?  Prints?  Stripes?  Oh, Woe is Me--we just can't let these things age anymore than we need to--so they are pinned to the design wall as we audition different fabrics.
