I have to sew the seam at the top then I’ll be adding about a 5” wide strip on each side of the medallion. At the top and bottom I’ll add an additional segment that will bring the piece to about 80” in length.
I originally thought about adding just the floral peach at the top and bottom with no piecing. Then I thought that was too blah so thought about adding a slice of the solid behind the butterflies in the middle of the floral. Better but still….yawn. I continued to play with ideas on the design wall in my mind. I moved on to a strip of the floral between the solid…noooope.
Yesterday when visiting with my friends while sewing I arrived at the idea of the blue bordered by the peach floral bordered by the solid. This is what I currently plan to insert in between the sea of peach floral. I’ll be taking some measurements on the bed to see where to place the strip.
