    Thanks for all the suggestions! http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-155028-1.htm

    I added a florish to the upper right corner, wasn't going to add a flower but looked better with and a ladybug.
    Added snail in lower left corner, which looked a LOT better when I stood back from my table and looked at it -
    but after I fused it in place an hung it to see I didn't like it as well........oh well, it's on there now!
    Also added a ladybug on the leaf on bottom right side.

    Now to stitach everything down with blanket stitch
    (definitely not my favorite part!) Will also add a stripe border

    Border fabric

    I love the snail and the ladybug. I think they are in perfect propotion to the quilt and not taking over but when your eye finds them, you smile. Great job. Be sure and post a 'done' pic.
