    Less is better! I think it's pretty great the way it is.

    I would extend the small flowers more in the lower right. Thee lower right looks a bit unbalanced. Just a few to fill some of the bank space. This is how I would comment if the piece was being judged. I believe this would give it more overall balance.

    IMHO it needs a border. Something dark...a blue perhaps? Otherwise the amount/style of quilting is just right.
    Love it, love it, love it!

    I think it's gorgeous as is. It doesn't need a thing added to it.

    I had plans to do a binding with a dark batic (which is the backing). Hadn't thought about another border, tho. I'll play with that and see how it feels.

    DogHouseMom also suggested other kinds of embellishments -- I think I"ll play around with that idea too.

    Thanks, all!

    HI all, if you want to see how this ended up, I posted it in the pictures area: It started as a Convergence Quilt ....

    Thanks for all your suggestions!

    All I can say is WOW!. I noticed the quilting stood out more in the upper left hand corner than it did in the lower right hand corner. Maybe that's what is tugging at you. Both have not applique, which I think is nice, so I wouldn't applique anything in the blue corner, although that was my first though. Perhaps a quilting patter that is tighter and in a more contrasting thread that what you have used? The thread and quilting really stand out in the upper left. Perhaps that could be echoed in the lower right. You have done a marvelous job!
