I Decided Against The Lilypads

11 Jul

Lakeville-20130711-00466

As I was appliqueing on the last few diamonds to pierce through the border, I realized, I really don;t want any lily pads on it. I’m not sure why, maybe I think they’ll make it too busy, nut I just decided against them. I decided to stick with the diamonds I appliques on and then that will be it.

I did decide to add them to pierce through the border, just to kind of tie it all together. If I had any of the fabrics from the center left, I would have used one of them to make to border, but I worked with what I had, so I put a few diamonds piercing through the center of the quilt and breaking out into the border. I feel like it really gives it some dimension and I really like that! I’m not sure how I’m going to quilt it, but I’ll figure that out eventually. I’m not sure if I want to accent the appliqued diamonds, or if I just want to quilt over them to make them fade into the rest of the quilt. I’m open to any suggestions people may have!
