I've finally finished the top to my Great-niece's baby quilt. She's two-months old, but I don't think she will notice I'm a bit late. The quilt is 54" x 54". My original plan was to appliqué a pink flower in the lower right-hand corner of the quilt, to add a bit of whimsy to the otherwise monochromatic quilt. Please look at the pictures below and let me know your opinion. The flower is going to be simplified if I do it, to have fewer but larger petals and larger bases, so they are easier to appliqué. But will a single pink flower add to the overall quilt or detract? What do you think? (I printed the original flower I was going to use out on paper and cut it out to test it).
This first picture is 'as is' no flower:
This second picture is with the appliquéd flower in the lower right-hand corner (the quilt colors in this picture are also accurate, the first picture turned out bluer than it should):
This third picture provides a little different perspective of the flower viewed from the opposite side (the color of the quilt is off a bit in this picture as well):
Please let me know your opinion! Thanks!
