I really like the neutral plain in the background, it goes a long way to offset the busyness of some of the prints. These strips will be sashed together with the same width sashing as the separate blocks and then bordered with a double width strip.
I think the "paws" themselves have come out quite well. They look a little disjointed with the large prints:
But I think they work really well with the smaller, more even prints:
I'm going to leave these up on the board so that I see them constantly, Hopefully that will encourage me to get them finished sooner!
