Ok readers – I have another layout for my Red and Green Applique Border. Another idea and opinions are welcome.
Keep in mind that all this is raw edge right now – needle turn will make everything smaller. The yellow centers on the small flowers will be cut smaller and more in size for the smaller look. I just didn’t get around to that yet.
Today’s version #3– the corner flowers are still the same size but with no leaves on them – the border flowers are actually what was the center of the larger flowers. Leaves are pointing towards the corner flowers. To me it looks less busy because the flowers are smaller – what do you guys think?
The other versions:
#1 Big flowers – most agreed with me that it just didn’t quite look right – too busy, flowers too big. Leaves by all flowers make them appear even larger.
#2 Less flowers, but the leaves still might make everything look too large and the flowers are all big
Ok so what do you all think? I am think it is between version 2 and 3 right now but I still could change my mind – If anyone has a good border option something that they have seen and have a link to that might possibly fit this quilt better let me know. I do not want anything fancy though or really complicated. I am ready for this quilt to be done!
