Less is more.

Or is it? Although this is now a finished quilt with the binding on and closed I feel that it does need something more. I'm just not sure what. More daisies?
The back is pretty boring, with not much to show, except those three flowers and a tiny bit of straight line stitching. It's a little on the billowy side too and I'm afraid to do too much in case I end up making it look awful with a bunch of creases and rumples. What do you think?
What ever I decide, I won't be doing it today. I've got me a temperature and I ache all over. I'm going to curl up on the sofa under a cosy quilt and hibernate for a day or three.

But before I go, meet my Mum's new fur baby. Ailsa is 9 weeks old.

How about a few quilted flowers with a contrasting bright thread in the borders - maybe some big stitch quilting with embroidery thread. Feel better soon x

It's very pretty, but I too think it needs a little more. I immediately thought that adding a few more of your daisies in the border might look good.

Looks good to me! Maybe after a bath it will soften up and look more cozy. I like the big daisies.

Cute puppy!

Your stitching is fine, Loulee. You can always do more if you feel the quilt is too billowy.

I agree with a couple of the other girls that maybe a couple of more flowers overlapping the border might just tie it all together. It really is a lovely quilt, nice and fresh. Ailsa is just gorgeous.

I think it's a totally cheerful quilt. Oh my goodness Ailsa is a darling.
