Passionate Quilting

What was I thinking? I'm so in love with this flower fabric on dark blue ground that I put some of it onto the right side. I thought that this empty space needed something. But there should not be 4 equal sized birds. Now I wonder, should I rip this flower bush off? It is a lot of work, and maybe unnecessary.
The loose thread bits are there to hold the layers in place. I find it nicer than pins; working with pins all over is like cuddling with a porcupine.

I want a ghost bird to appear on the checkered space.

Eva, I'd leave the littlest bird in the distance where you have it, but place the flower in that wide expanse of print lower left. I wouldn't worry about the empty space because it could be the place where the eyes find a place to rest and let the imagination soar. Just my humble opinion.

I would leave it in. The red/pink in it balances the feet and bright tail feathers in the 2 lower birds. I didn't even notice it until you pointed it out so it must have been pleasing to the eye.

I like the smaller bird in the distance but I'm not fond of the flower bush....it doesn't work for my eyes....it seems a bit too busy. I do love the big birds...great colors and details on the feathers.

I'd leave it. What about a ghost bird of organza on the checkered peice?

I think the crowded corner has a naive charm that seems just right. Wait and see what the rest of it looks like when you've put in the ghost. I like the unbalanced look; you can always take the flowers off later if you decide to.
