    I like both ways. Funny how we are all different.

    Maybe you would like it better if you couched some yarn on top or used colored thread when quilted. I personally like it without the circles.

    Don't put the circles in-maybe you could quilt with a variegated thread to tie it all in-it certainly is very bright-can't wait to see the finish-Best stitches

    That does make sense! You are correct that there is too much white. I would make the border smaller. Then I would add 2 other borders. Here is a picture from my Quilt Pro program.

    Also I agree that you should use colored thread when quilting the white blocks

    I don't care for the circles. it's too busy. How about just a small red border around the white.

    Now don't hit me but I would take it apart and make for LC blocks. Your fab is gorgeous. I like white in quilts too but just a little too much here.
    If you don't work on it you'll never finish it.

    I like Arleners version, but whatever you do, I would leave off the circles.

    Yes that is what I was thinking too.
