Alex Anderson Quilt


Needle turn applique all done and ready to be sandwiched.
I love this quilt but I don't know, I think it needs something in the middle???

Betsy that is just so lovely...I think it is perfect just like that...

Pat said...

It looks very nice and could certainly be considered complete. However...I know what you mean as I had that applique block for my Sylvia's Bridal Quilt that has an empty center and only applique around the edges and I feel THAT needs something in the middle, too. Whichever way you decide to go, it will look great, though.

I actually love it as it is. Mind you, I don't know what you are wanting it to look like. I really think orange is making a big comeback.

I think it is perfect as is! Sorry...sometimes less is more.

Karen said...

i love the border with the flowers and vines....I think if you put something in the middle it will take away from how pretty the border is.....but like Pat said, whatever u decide, its going to look great!

JustCindy said...

I have to agree with the other's. You could leave as it is since it very pretty that way or you could add some applique' in the middle and then it would be even prettier.

Love your little quilt. I know that if you're unhappy with the way it looks, no one else's opinion matters. However you complete it, it's going to be great.

I love the quilt as it is :o) Love the colours!

Julianne's Machine Quilting said...

I agree..It is perfect as is.

Cindy said...

Yes, I agree, sometimes "less" is "more". It's just wonderful the way it is, Fiesta, looks great.

Barb said...

I love it just the way it is! The applique on the border is just the ticket--not needed in the center at all! Gorgeous!

Melissa said...

I like it as it is. The colors you chose are so perfect that one can sense movement in the center without being overwhelmed by business.

Barb said...

Wow...that is truly wonderful...you did a wonerful job. Love the colors...everything.

Zoey said...

Fiesta, that is gorgeous just the way it is. I love the bold, bright colors and that applique on the borders.

Are you thinking something like one of the border flowers in the center?

I can't wait to see what you finally decide.

Great top. I think you need to leave it just the way it is.

Purple Pam said...

The applique you added made it perfect. For me, it needs no more.

Karen said...

Lovely colours!! I wouldn't put anything in the middle. Less is more.

GARI said...

It looks like table topper size. If so, the middle won't be seen as much as the sides so it doesn't need anything. Besides, the hour glass blocks are really quite busy. I love the look and especially the color.

Love it just the way it is Betsy! Those colors are amazing!

Eileen said...

I agree with the others.. it really looks great the way it is. But if you think a little something in the middle like you have on the edges would look good.. I think it would too. :-)

Jean said...

It is beautiful just like it is. Leave it a few days and then decide. Sometimes when I work on something I am a little disappointed when I near the end as I think it is not as fabulous as I hoped! lol I think sometimes we just grow a little tired of it too. After a few days, you can look at it with fresh eyes.

Debbie said...

just popped by to see what was on your blog... and wow.... as usual... a great project... i don't think it needs anything at all :)

The Quilting Pirate said...

WOW...spectacular!!! Just beautiful!

aubirdwoman said...

super... how about one of the flowers that is in the corner block but with an extra green piece around it... so there are like three petals and the green is next to the quilt.
Its lovely tho.
