Design Wall Monday - Week Four!

Good Monday Morning all! This is a top I have had up on my design wall this last week, waiting for a decision to be made. This is a block I "designed" (meaning I didn't use a pattern, just kind of happened organically) for a BOM class I was teaching at the LQS. I liked the block so much and had this fabric with the wonderful carnations so made a whole top out of it. They are 12" blocks. I had thought it was "done" but I'm not so sure. So I was thinking of a small stopper and then a bit more of the carnations. Problem is, I can't find any more of the the carnations in my inventory! I have a couple more places to look before I go online and see if I can find more. It was one of the flower of the month fabrics from a few years ago. So I am pretty confident I can find more of it. And so if I do a stopper, do I use the pink or maybe a narrow green? If you enlarge the photo you will see the green in the fabric. I'm giving it two more days and if I don't make a decision, it will go back into my UFO stack. Thoughts?
Also, I am really enjoying my quilt a day posting on my blog. I'd love to have you check it out, so far I have 24 different quilts posted and I am right on track!!!

A very striking block/quilt! I like the idea of a visible green. Good luck on the fabric search if needed.

I've been following your daily quilts! Keep it up.

I like the idea of a "stopper" that black strips in the center area of the quilt? Whatever it is, that's what I'd use. I wouldn't add green if you haven't used it in the main body of the quilt.
Aren't ya glad you asked? :)

I like the idea of the green stopper - it should make the green in the leaves pop - hope you find more carnations.
