                                                 Working on the Border

                    Still not quite sure which way to go - here is what I have doen so far.

In the middle is the first  one I drew ...and I was happy with that till I put it up next to the cloth...looked like too many feathers, and the curve was going the wrong way....
So I did the second one  - the far right one.  Wasnt sure about that one either..
So did the third one.  the one now next to the main design. 
I thought one side of feathers only and maybe some 1/2 inch piano keys along the edge...and Dianeshiko or apple cores in the corner, but not sure about the corner bits.

So now I am just looking at them all and wondering if I should draw some more. 

OR just stick to the original drawing! OR the one with lots of feathers and make the center stems a bit smaller..

Decisions decisions.

Your design is so beautiful. I like your idea of the piano keys. It's nice to have the contrast of the simple lines against the curves of the feathers.

I think it looks like so much fun drawing out some different ideas. I know how good the piano keys would look from the last time you did them. I'll be looking forward to seeing what you decide.

I like the third one (the one next to the main drawing) a lot.

All of the drawings are lovely and I know you will end up doing your usual magic. I have one suggestion, maybe the border should have a curved outside edge instead of a straight one?????

Crispy - who is making more work for you LOL.

It will be beautiful either way, I think. :)

I think any and all will be gorgeous. You're so talented with these things.

I just love watching your design emerge. May I ask: what are Dianshiko and apple cores in quilting?

Sue said...

All of the designs are lovely. I'm enjoying reading about your design process.

All the designs look amazing, but I'm afraid I don't have the necessary experience to express a preference. Let it percolate a little and I'm sure the right answer will come to you :)

Seems you're as busy as can be and so creative, gal.
Hope to catch up with what I've been missing on your posts.

Joan, I've just found your blog and am amazed at how gorgeous your quilting is. I'm going to visit all the time now. Hope you don't mind.
