And then there was the next stage

Last posting I showed you the centre I've received to work on for the Spring Fling Round Robin
The centre measured 8.5" and needed sufficient adding to it to make it 13.5" square
It is up to the stitcher to work out how to do that - a simple all round border, setting it on point maybe or, as I've chosen, an offset border on just two of the sides
And here we are
The cream spotted background is the fabric I shall send it on its way with (along with the purple leftovers) to promote continuity
When I first dreamed up my addition I thought I might like to add a little applique to the centre block in the cream - now I really don't know..........
What do you all think?

This is great and I wouldn't change a thing about it. Now I'm re-thinking my idea for my project.

You are so artistic! What a wonderful way to set off a block! I never would have thought to offset a block like this but such an easy idea (not easy applique) and it makes a stunning block.

Gorgeous! I'm glad I'm not the next person in line who has to follow that beautiful example.

I just love what you did with this! Your applique always inspires me to get started with more hand applique myself. This summer....
