Whaddya think?

I've been trying to decide whether or not to incorporate some silhouette images appliqued onto this top, so I brought it outside this morning with the back to hang off my trusty porch railing to photograph. Sometimes a picture helps you "see".

Since there is no looming deadline and actually no intended recipient for this one, I thought I might try another new-to-me technique. That tiny blue pin-stripe between the top & the border was fun (and easy!) and I really like how it separates the two. I've seen some really pretty silhouettes incorporated in other's work and thought this might be the project for it.

But after looking at these photos, I think I'm going to leave it as is. Silhouettes would just add a whole level of busy-ness that isn't needed. This will probably end up being a throw for someone's couch - I think it needs to be comforting.

What do you think?



  1. I think you are very right. It doesn't need a thing. I think it will be great as a cover up and cuddle on the couch item. But you never know you might think of an event it is needed for pretty soon.

  2. I agree. I t looks great as it is. I love the fabrics you've used

    Love and hugs Gina xxx

  3. I agree it looks good the way it is. Have a great day. Lynn

  4. I agree with the others, and with you. Amazing how helpful it is to have a photo huh? Digital cameras are great for that. You'll have to make another quilt to use your stripe on :0)
