    Without! I like the crispness of the plain blue & white. Some interesting quilting on the white, with white thread would be attractive. (Not hearts.)

    I think a pale blue thread would look good.

    That was plan B, if I don't use the hearts then I'll try a special motif in the white space. Though then the decision is white thread or blue?

    My vote is for the first one as well. It is beautiful - she will love it.

    Love your quilt. I would leave the hearts out. It sure is a beautiful blue & white classic!

    I would go without the hearts you've shown. Both layouts are pretty but I would want to quilt something in those beautiful white spaces!

    I agree. However, if you do use the hearts keep in mind their placement (how close the same print is next to itself). You wouldn't have to put a heart in every white snowball, you can put some in the blue, on angles, and between white and blue. Play with it, have fun!

    I like with the hearts.....maybe keeping it blue you could go with dark blue hearts.

    Without the hearts would be my preference. I love what others have said about a motif of some sort in the white spaces. I would use white thread on them and then a blue thread on the other blocks. This is really lovely!!! It's on my bucket list to make a blue and white quilt some day. Yours is so nice!!!!

    I'm in the no fabric ♥s camp ... and do detailed ♥ quilting in the white spaces. Blue thread, without a doubt! :)

    What a lovely 50th present for your sister!
