As I was stitching, I spent a lot of time thinking about this pattern. Although I appreciate all the tiny little details, I like more white space in my quilts. I'm going to skip the round flowers and even the 6 petaled ones that surround the star. I'm really looking forward to the corner vases and I think they will stand out more without the extras. To further annoy the purists, I also plan on making the next several borders larger, spreading the designs out for white space, and to make up for the fact that I'm not crazy about the bow/swag outer border. Those corner designs that look like willows / amaranth / sad corn....will likely be replaced by dragonflies. At least that's my plan as of today.
