Need a little advice here . . .

Hi ya'll! Remember this?


It's my table topper that I made for the Farmer's Wife in Your Life blog hop, that Sunni hosted. I'm gripped with indecision. Simply slammed with doubts. My brain is in overload mode, and that is plumb dangerous. 

I have a question for you, the special Lilypadquilting peeps:

Should I applique butterflies in the blank areas, like this:


Or should I embroider butterflies and maybe some text, like this:


I guess the text could be something sweet and sappy about butterflies, and spring, and things like that. 

Or should I just leave it like it is --- simple, and get 'er quilted?  Personally, I kinda like how the background lets me focus on those blocks, but then again . . .

The binding will be a narrow, scrappy one, with the left-over fabrics from the blocks: pink, green, blue, lavender.

Please! Help me out here, and leave a comment to tell me what you think! (Grin) I'm leaning toward the third option, but if you think I should do differently, won't ya tell me about it?

Love,
