I can't believe I'm the first! It's good to get up early, isn't it? I love what you've done, but maybe some simple embroidery around the inside edge of the stitchery? You are so talented, I can't believe I'm giving you advice(such as it is)! LOL

Libby said...

Maybe just a little 'something-something' . . . an embroidered flower or squiggle *s*

Kim said...

Yep, I agree with the other gals--that's what I was thinking. Very cute!

kjquilts said...

I think it is very cute! I'd just add a little vine around the words. Is it going to be a pillow?

May Britt said...

May be if you just made a simple border 1/4 inch in on the embroidery part like this:
- - - X - - - X - - -
or where the X is perhaps a little lazy daisy flower.

Not Lucy said...

I agree with everyone else. It is very cute but I would say a few flowers or something as a border around the words or at least in a couple of the corners.

Bren said...

I think everyone has the right idea...but what about a couple of little yo yo's like you did on the onther one? That was really cute!

Cheryl said...

sweet as can be...like others said maybe a little embrodery, some buttons or some tiny yo yo's - can't help myself, I just love yo yo's!

Doodlebug Gail said...

Like everyone else I too think it needs something .... I love May Britt's idea. Even a vine or wavy line around the edge would look lovely and enhance your project.

Perry said...

A small border between the center and the outside, like your last one, would help. Then maybe 1/2 inch inside of that, a running stitich done with embrodiery thread as an inner border?

Wendy said...

I would suggest something similar to everyone else. Lazy daisy in each corner and a squiggly vine to connect them. Hope this helps you.
Show us what you decided on.

Something small -- I'm going to agree with some of the others, some embroidery around the edges of the saying? Or maybe some applique pieces that "cross the boundary" between the background of the saying and the patchwork?

Nadine said...

I vote for TINY yoyo's, as well !

Linda said...

I can't add any better idea than what you've already received. Looking lovely though.

Yvonne said...

Everyone has such good ideas...I'll just say that I love it and whatever you decide I'm sure will be wonderful!

Annie said...

I was thinking some strip piecing but noticed that you put that in your last one with a quote, so what about diamonds on point with a contrasting colour? Just a suggestion. You look like much more of an expert than me. I found your blog through Wendy at Snippets of a Quilter. Thanks!

Thimbleanna said...

It's adorable -- looks like most are in agreement with the embroidered border -- that's my choice too!

Suze said...

Can you put a little scroll design in two corners? Or perhaps a button?

Carol said...

Cute as can be and there's not a thing I can add to the already wonderful suggestions. You sure are having fun :-)

paula, the quilter said...

I'm going to agree with the others, because the first thing I thought was that it needed a bit of an inner border like

Angie said...

Yes, yes, embroidery -- a 'little something'--then stick that puppy in the mail to moi!!! :D I love it!! You beat everything, you know that (as Randy says LOL).

Knot Garden said...

Maybe a tiny vine with some button flowers? Something simple but sweet. Looking forward to seeing what you do!

Mel said...

I'd do something like a vine or a bow?

Jeanne said...

I was going to suggest a little something in the top left and bottom right corners - like two curvy lines meeting at a 90 degree angle with a flower or two embroidered there. It's adorable!

Tina Dillon said...

Hi Darlene,
It looks great - maybe some small cute quirky/vintage buttons would finish it off nicely!
Tina.

sharon said...

I think tiny little flowers in the corners maybe. It's very cute.

Hanne said...

I agree with May Britt - a running stitch with some XXX in between - maybe a small heart here and there in between the -----
