Dressing Up A Bland Quilt

I don't have a photo of this radiating star quilt before I applied the flower pots but I think you can imagine how bland this quilt was without them.
I pondered a solution for several weeks before coming up with the flowers.

I started with the center one and immediately decided to not stay within the confines of the block which, in my opinion, was a smart decision.
In the following blocks I used some of my favorite textured fabrics and of course use my favorite adhesive, Steam-a-Seam.




The final measurements of this quilt is 48 inches square and I'm much happier with it now.  What are your thoughts on the subject of dressing up a quilt??

I think it was a great idea. Because of the color I use I never have a "bland" quilt but my thinking is that it isn't complete until I think it is complete. I am not much of an embellisher (sp?)but I really do like applique on a quilt. Was it difficlt to do the applique on the full quilt?

Rhonda, I love it! Adding the flowers just made it POP! Great job, my friend!!!!

I agree that it needed something. Your applique flowers really make it pop. Another thing that could have worked was some fancy quilting in colored thread.

Great idea to embellish with applique! I intend to get more into embellishing this year, especially with broderie perse.

Don't count the days, make the days count!
