And a little more floral progress

 I have been steadily working on this quilt each morning.  Lots of strings...I am re-thinking that bright pink scrap down the middle bottom half....but all that piecing needs something in between it!!!  Maybe some squares?
Also, the brown baskets...I think I will add something to brighten them up, to match the rest of the quilt.


Any thoughts from you?


Hugs to all!

It's going to be a beautiful quilt! Would maybe a solid strip like that tall vase tie it all together rather than the pink? Just wondering. I really like your pieced sashings! ---"Love"

When I said I didn't like my quilt, it was more I didn't feel any attachment to it. I do love your strings, but agree that pink strip may need to be replaced.

Maybe a yellow, or 2 or 3 colours would be less "out there" than the pink?

It is looking so good! Maybe the pink stands out a little too much. If you use a color that blends more--and possibly add it in with another sashing or two, it would fit in nicely.

i too agree with replacing the pink...

The pink catches my eye for sure. It's just there, you know? I would suggest either replacing it with a darker strip or adding more pink strips between other blocks to tie it in. The vases look good to me, but maybe because I don't feel they're the focus?

Replace the pink with a dark colour, similar to vases. I dont mind it myself, but it does distract the eye. A few yo yo flowers in the little baskets would be nice.

If you fancy the pink, just put some more in, perhaps a narrow sashing around all the blocks?

Love those bright stringy sashings! And I'm in with the crowd - either throw in lots more pink, or replace it with a darker color. (I'd say orange, but I always say orange, so don't listen to me...)

Perhaps instead of the pink, bring in the color of the baskets to make it more cohesive?
