Revised window box

     On to the revised version.....I kept looking at what I had on the design wall and felt it was just too dark at the top.  It felt weighty and was very much like one I did before.  So off it came.   I wanted to create the image of old stone work along the top with the vine growing up one side.   I also reworked the flowers, and removed the pieces for the window box.  Russ suggested I do more of an offset design this time...hence the extra row on the right.  I think I might accent the offset with borders of different sizes too.  I can decide that later. 
   So far I am pleased with the result---just a few more tweaks in spots.    Then  to get all the pieces fused in place---before they fall off the grid.  Once the seams are sewn, I have plans to add details to the windows and such. 
  The blended braid is about half quilted---2 projects going at one  time and the sewing room is a disaster.   I need to clean up all the 2" squares so I can get back to quilting.
Happy stitching,

Debbie your window box watercolor design is gorgeous. I love to see watercolor quilts but have never tried to make one. Are the assorted florals very had to find?
