    I'm making this quilt for my sister for her 50th birthday this fall. She loves blue. I had originally planned hearts for the middle of each snowball, but now I think I like it better without. What do you all think?

    Without the hearts. The hearts seem to take away from the blue. It's lovely.

    Hmmmm, I like both, though I lean towards the all blue and white one. (I tend to lean towards two colored quilts, so I may be a bit biased.) Have you cut out a few blue hearts to see how those would look? Just a thought....

    Without the hearts. With seems more juvenile, while without seems more adult. Both are pretty - just an observation.

    Same thoughts here.

    That's what I was going to say before I read Deb's comment-- more of a grown up look without the hearts. It would look beautiful with just some special quilted motif in contrast colored thread right in the centers of the snowballs. Here's a site with some free motifs for ideas:

    Without, but you could use the heart theme in quilting the white snowballs.

    I like it best without the hearts and the open white spaces leave plenty of room for some fabulous quilting. Perhaps you could do some feathered heart quilting in the white blocks??

    That was plan B, if I don't use the hearts then I'll try a special motif in the white space. Though then the decision is white thread or blue?
