So, after much going back and forth I decided to see out my original idea of adding triangles to several of my quilt block corners to create scattered diamonds throughout my NouvElle quilt. First I layered on a few of those cuts to get a good visual and then the good, honest feedback came from my kiddos, who have all taken turns having the flu these past several days! The vote was unanimous, the diamond centers made it that much better, and so closely formed the image I had in mind from the beginning, inspired by the friendship bracelet diamond pattern I attempted to make as a child!
I really did like it just as it was, without the diamonds, as many of you suggested it should be. But better is always good, and even though I was perfectly fine with not making more work for myself this week with so much going on, I am just too good at that!
I'm super happy with how this one turned out and hope you are too! Now to decided on the quilting, hmn? I'm thinking something pretty and feathery or a sweet flower pattern like this one, yes?
