Berries or No Berries??

My Joy Angels are appliqued, basted and ready to start quilting - yea!!! I've marked a simple grid to start.
I'm was able to get some quilting done while we flew to Charlotte to spend a long weekend celebrating our oldest granddaughter's 7th birthday.

So my big question is this - do I add some red berries to vine or not? The original pattern called for red pears but I didn't want to add that much red since I added the red border. I'd love to hear your opinions..... :).

Until next time,

Karen

It looks wonderful! I agree with Darlene about adding some berries. I think they would help balance everything out. :0)

Karen said...

Seems like I put yellow pears on mine.

Diane said...

adorable little quilt, I'd add the berries too.

Angie said...

I think berries would definitely add some little pops of color!

I agree, red pears would be too much, but a few red berries would be great.

Hi Karen,
I love your angels. I think some red berries would be a nice addition eventhough it's already beautiful.

Stephanie said...

I like the idea of red berries but with or without, it's lovely.

Kathy ... better known as Nana said...

While it's certainly lovely as is, I think the red berries would add a little pop to it without going overboard like pears would have.

Definitely red berries. That looks so pretty!

Kaaren said...

Ditto for the red berries.

It's lovely now but I think it would be lovelier with some fruit on the vines.

I agree with the above comments - I think some scattered random berries would look great!
