    I would like any suggestions on how to finish this row robin quilt top. I was thinking about adding some patchwork blocks around it and then more borders. Don't really know what I want to do with it though, so am open to suggestions. Thanks!

    I think the patchwork idea is a good one - incorporate more of the rose and tan colors from the center to provide balance.

    I would use the colors from the flying geese and the rose too and use a block that has HSTs and/or angled movement. Increase the border by at least an inch to keep the consistency. IMHO bringing those colors to the edge would frame it nicely.
