This is a chinese coin I am making for a dear friend. Again hand-quilted and again large-stitched to add to (I think) the charm and purposeful wonkiness. That being said I doodled a leafy design in the one white strip and stitched it all down. My mom felt I should do the same leafy design in only one other white strip and do a simpler design in the other three. I tried a diamond pattern but I feel like it is just too much visually and not simple anymore. Should I do a different design in the alternate white sashing or just bite the bullet and keep it all the leafy design I've doodled??
