I just finished my first quilt top, but I am not sure what to do next.  Should I go ahead and put together the batting and backing or do you think I should try appliqu?  I have attached pictures because the print is a little busy already and I'd like some feedback on ideas.

Crafts make us feel rooted, give us a sense of belonging and connect us with our history.  Our ancestors used to create these crafts out of necessity, and now we do them for fun... to express ourselves.

So why buy what you can craft?  Smiley

i wouldn't do appliques on it, since it is really busy for my eyes. But tastes are different for gods sake.

If this would be my quilt I would attach a black border around (and a black backside, too), finish the sewing (filling and backside) and then I would quilt the quilt with black yarn. Something with large and small circels all over.
Gives a psychedelic look.
In case you are not to sure about that idea- just print out a photo of your photo and draw the border and circles with a black pencil on it to get an idea of the look.

i wouldn't applique, either. the pattern just doesn't read as "please applique me" to me ... but i DO like the idea of the black border & back. the black framing would really set off all your colors. great fabric, by the way!
