    Ineed input please

    I was inspired by motorcyclerooster's wallhanging to dig this out of the ufo's. I started this in a class many years ago and just never finished it. You can see in the bottom corner the flower pots that are intended for the corner setting blocks to cover up the ends of the bias vines, and the flowers that were intended to be appliqued along the vines, there are some tulip shaped ones and leaves that I didn't get in the pic. I would like your input.
    1. I would like to introduce some different fabrics for the flowers and pots. Would that look too off?
    2. I have been thinking about small dresden plates as the flowers, or even hexagon flowers??
    3. if I do use different fabric do you have any ideas of lines to use?
    Any other ideas I haven't thought of?
    I am excited for your input, and maybe I can get this ufo on it's way to being finished!




    Thanks! Lola

    Hey girl
    I am the LAST one to ask about lines of fabrics. I think this is so gorgeous. What size is it so far and what are you considering the final size to be?
    Love the thought of the hexagon flowers.

        It's right about 45" square, and I think it will stay that size. It already seems pretty large for a wall hanging, but where I want to put it is a pretty large empty space anyway.
        I do think it needs flowers of some kind along the vines, it doesn't have to be a bunch, just something. I think all of the same fabrics would just be a bit redundant??
        Thanks so much for the compliments. I think wow every time I dig it out and ponder how to finish it and I really want this time to be IT.

          Lola, this is drop dead gorgeous. I think a scattering of small flowers might be really cute, but it's already so beautiful that the thought of adding different fabrics seems a little scary.
