    Can you post a pic of the whole quilt? It might be easier to tell. Thanks

    Are the pinwheels around the frog a red and white print? If so I would try a border of red with tiny white flowers, sort of opposite of the pinwheel print. That would liven the whole thing up. It would not have to be really wide. I'm thinking a 2 or 3 inch red with white border and then a white with red border whatever width you wanted.

    Really nice quilt, but the navy seems to suck the life out of it.

    Yes, there is lots of navy -- but it has lots of movement.

    Is there any way to introduce some white onto some of the navy squares on point?
