But, getting to the title of my post, I've finally made a decision on how to quilt the background of my plumeria! Whew! Making this sort of decision is always the hardest part for me. I've settled on two motifs, rather than one. I'm doing pebbles and swirls; the pebbles represent the earth where the plant is growing, and the swirls represent the water surrounding Hawaii. I've spent quite a bit of time working on this today, but I'm not yet finished.
And, of course, I still need to make a final decision about what to quilt in the border… ;)
