Floral Quilt

I want to use this design at the center of a 4' x 6' floral quilt.

This border is too big and heavy. It's out of scale and overpowers the center.

What if I develop the center a bit?

It has more of a presence now.

These corners don't work. They compete with the center.

What if I try something simpler in the corners?

What if I try building out from the corners to create a border?

This works better.

If I use pink flowers in the border the center takes on greater importance.

This is a delicate quilt top that needs some quilting to complete it.
