Design floor...

I don't have a design wall big enough to show what I have been working on so I had to put it on the floor (again).


I can't decide what to do with the corners and side triangles. Should I make it scrappy? Should I use one fabric in all the places? A different fabric in each area? Or maybe just leave the carpet? :)

Help!
I want to do some applique in the corners and side triangles so the fabric won't be the focal point. I am leaning toward each piece being different and the corners being big four patches but...
help...

Since all of your whites in the blocks are scrappy, I think your scrappy plan for the background is fine. I really like what you have so far. :D

I love this quilt! I vote for the scrappy background similar to the upper left corner. Applique in those areas would really look great!

Oh, I love that! Is there a pattern for it?

I think I'd piece the corner sections out of light squares the same size as the ones in the center of the quilt.

I agree with Jane . You have a scrappy thing going on so I would continue on that for the background .You've done a great job on this quilt . Let us see it when its finished !!

I also like the idea of a scrappy background too.

You know I always vote for scrappy! I love the four patch corners! Hugs...

I vote for scrappy too. Like the idea of some applique and the 4-patch in the very outer corners. Maybe some sort of viney-swag-looking thing.

My initial thought was scrappy letting some beautiful quilting be the highlight, but if you are doing applique, I wonder if you want any seams behind the applique in the cornors? Just a thought to consider?

Love the quilt - would you be willing to share the pattern title and designer's name? As far as which design??? They all are beautiful ideas. I like the scrappy backgrounds and a viney applique (something not very large)unless you are going to have something fancy (like feathered wreath) you need something in the large white areas. JMHO

I like the scrappy star design. Looks like a big piece.
