    They're just pinned on right now.

    The question is, does it look balanced?

    Well, I'm not sure I get the snowflakes with the flowers. It seems confusing and contradictory. Snowflakes in July? Blooming flowers in the winter? Perhaps birds or butterflies would be more appropriate.

    That being said, the snowflakes are beautiful.

    You see lots of cardinals in wintery pictures. I like it!

    I agree another snowflake in the left - apparently uneven numbers balance a design quicker, love the cardinal with the snowflakes!

    I agree - it needs something in the lower left.

    Very pretty. There needs to be a snowflake on bottom corner that is bare. Great job.

    I agree. I'm in the Thumb too...

    I think it looks fabulous! I like the 6-sided snowflakes better than the stars.

    I like it as it is. Design always benefits from a little tension - if you put one bottom left it would be less interesting, more 'obvious'. :-D

    Sorry, Just don't get the snow flakes. They look out of place. I'd go with something else and save them for a wintery quilt.

    Love it! I don't think you need any more it looks like the snow has just started falling.

    I like the idea, but as some have mentioned, it does seem to throw you off kilter with flowers and snow combined. But art is in the eye of the beholder and I think you have a depth of vision we can only admire. As for adding another snowflake, I think as is, draws your eyes around the quilt, very pretty! My vote, Leave as is :)

    A couple in the lower left, perhaps a large and a small one. It's beautiful work!
