    So pretty! I love this pattern.
    Life has given me so much more than scraps, but I make quilts anyway!

    Very pretty! It seems to have a calming effect, at least to me. I like!

    The quilt is stunning...beautiful work...you could outline the flowers and then stipple between them.

    Wonderful quilt ! Simple stippling might work.

    Show off those beautiful flowers with some echo quilting. In the borders, I would just follow,the criss cross pattern.

    This is simply gorgeous. I look forward to seeing what you select. A pantograph flower pattern or leaf pattern may be in order. Thank you for sharing this beauty.

    I think that echo quilting would really bring those flowers out even more. You've really done a beautiful job. And I love your border. It's smashing!

    What a beautiful quilt, I have never seen that pattern before. No clue on how to quilt it. I usually hand quilt .

    I'm impressed with the shading you did on some of the flowers. And that border is fantastic!

    I agree, I thing taking a simpler approach would work well and really show off your beautiful work.
