    colors of Oklahoma spring

    I am posting a picture of my newest quilt top, Oklahoma spring. It was inspired by Carol Wilson's colours of Australia. I am not sure if I want to put the circles on over the design I have now. Please comment

    I love it with circles. They kind of finish it up. IMHO AND I love it vertical rather than horizontal.

    I like the circles, try auditioning with the circles arranged in different ways and maybe fewer circles. Love the idea!!

    I love the circles too & was going to say, play with arranging them on it, till you are happy with it! They do really add to the quilt, kind of make it pop, actually! Great job too, I love the colors!

    It is gorgeous with or without the circles! Keep playing with placement of the circles, not quite right yet on that IMHO.

    It is really pretty either way. However, I also vote for the circles. They add another dimension and excitement to an already beautiful quilt!

    Me too. If you really wonder about the circles, do different arrangements and take pictures of each one.

    With circles. They add dimension and interest. Vertical for me.

    I think it needs the circles. They are the flowers blooming among the leaves. I like it much better. Looks like a lot of work!

    I like it both ways. With the circles is much more fun. As others have suggested, try rearranging them for more balance and try overlapping a few of them for more depth. I would also trying a couple right on the edge of the quilt by folding them just to see what it looks like and how about folding a few right around to the back of the quilt so you see some from both sides! ooooh! Love the strata style of the top. It is going to be so cool when Finished.

    I like it without the circles, reminds me of the windy Oklahoma panhandle.

    Funky! Love it and would use the circles. They add to it.
