I think I like having a 3 and a 4 stemmed flower on each horizontal row (see above) rather than 3 next to 3 like these two examples
And just for giggles, down and up OR up and down
(Don't think I can handle either of these arrangements.)
And now to decide about inner sashing or whether to put a floral applique in the center??? And what about inner border? outer border? Do I want to do a red, green and cheddar zigzag triangle border, like on this antique applique quilt? I would do it in a larger scale but the nice thing about this zigzag is it is all triangles and could be paper pieced.
Or do I want to make a big zigzag like this one, found on an amazing Bethlehem Star with Lilies from PA -- again see the Pennsylvania color scheme that keeps inspiring me. Problem with this one, is I'll have to figure out how to piece it and I don't know if I can paperpiece it?
