Design Wall Monday--My Lupine Heaven

 Design Wall Monday--see more design walls on Judy's Small Quilts and Doll Quilts

Well I don't have a design wall, so my design floor will have to do.  It's been occupied by the same quilt top for the past couple of weeks.  

This is my green and purple version of Bonnie Hunter's "My Blue Heaven", a free quilt pattern on her Quiltville website.  I cut the borders and got them sewn on easily. 

I liked this fabric the best of the several choices pulled from stash--I wanted to stay more white than ecru.  No recollection at all where I picked this up, but I had about 3/4 yd and have leftovers.  Then I sewed together a row of the green hourglass blocks already completed for the outside border. 

I am not really liking the teal/aqua blues in these blocks--they seem very distracting as there is no teal in the star blocks.  So here it sits until I overthink/decide whether to continue the borders or make more hourglass blocks without the teal.  Opinions welcome!

There is another quilt sandwich waiting for quilting so perhaps I will work on that and get it off my cutting table this week!

There is one shade that stands out quite a bit in that border. I guess it boils down to how you feel about removing it and finding a replacement.

Pretty quilt. Two of my favorite colors. LOL
I don't have a design wall either but the floor works great until the cat discovers the blocks

The teal does seem a bit "off" with the rest of the quilt. maybe just stick with greens? Hopefully you've got a path forward after contemplating it on the design floor this week.

I guess I like the teal. You could quilt it up with teal thread to pull it all together.
