Decisions

Today I sewed together the four circle flower blocks that I made back in this post.



That was the easy part. Now I need to decide where to go from here. My original plan was to connect the flowers from block to block with more leaves once the blocks were sewn together, but now I think that might be too busy and take away from the simple shapes.

My thoughts now are do I leave it as is, quilt, bind, and call it done, or do I add a border? And if I add a border should I add applique to the border or should I do some kind of pieced border? Decisions decisions! At the moment I am leaning towards a pieced border. I do love applique and piecing together in the same quilt. I definitely need to sleep on it. Ideas are welcome. Actually, I'm not beneath begging...

I think a border would be nice,maybe you could "scatter" some leaves around the border? Love the blocks.

What fun blocks! Really nice fabric combinations!

I would do a pieced border, but I would do something that repeated the shapes in your applique--either a "drunkards path" (round shapes) or "robbing Peter to pay Paul"/"orange peel" (leaf shapes), and I would do the border in those great bright colors like your applique shapes. I really admire your use of color in your quilts.

I would do a simple checkerboard. Vivid but unelaborate. And bind it with a black and white check. ~a
