WOW: Nelke Progress

WOW = WIPs On Wednesdays
Ooops, I lost my bird!
Here I am with my Nelke progress. I didn't notice my sweet little birdy fell off, but you get the idea. Now that I look at it, I think it needs something in the corners, perhaps a motif? I couldn't decide. I was thinking about simple circles, then love hearts and then bows on an angle in each corner, but couldn't decide so I've left it for now. Actually looking at it now with fresh eyes, I think it's crying out for 4 sweet corner bows. What do YOU think?

Nelke is still available for free to members of my Yahoo Group (why not join?), for everyone else, you can buy this pattern over in my online shop.

What's Your WOW?

  2. Hi Esther how lovely to see it almost finished it looks so like the original designs your fabrics are so close to the drawings, I'd like to see two bows in the top corners only I think in the reds you have used!!!! It's Looking so lovely as usual. Cheers Glenda

  3. Esther, I think I'd leave that white space as is. It leaves a beautiful spot for some feathers.

  4. It's looking wonderful, Esther. I would be tempted to put a small heart (as you suggested) or a small hexagon in each corner to cover where the scallops meet. You must be thrilled with it so far. I would be! xx

  5. Very Pretty! I would leave the corners as they are and do some fancy quilting - feathered hearts maybe?

  6. How strange, before I read what you had written, I thought that it would look so much better with circles in the corners. Great minds etc. Whatever you put in, I feel it needs something.

  7. Lovely! How about another bird in each corner, each with a leaf twig in their mouth?

  8. My first thought at seeing the photo was - it needs something in the corners! Red circles or hearts?

  9. It's beautiful--love the Di Ford print you used for the vase. I think you are right--the corners need a little something.

  10. Your Nelke is beautiful, Esther. I like how the white in the center of each flower is placed slightly differently. I also feel that the upper corners are a little bare but you'll know what is best to do there. You have great artistic ability!

  11. Gorgeous!
    I think you should add birds in the corner. You can never have too many birds!
