Quilt Advice Needed & Some Product Reviews!

I am totally stuck on this quilt.
I am not sure what I want to do with it.

I need some advice.

1. Should I end the columns with the scrappy row?


 With these scrappy half square triangles?

I am wanting to add applique flowers to the solid purple columns, but I am not sure which flowers to do. Should I make these circle style flowers?


these small vine-y flowers?


These Large Flowers?

I have this quilt up on my design wall and I am really wanting to finish it, but I am not sure what to do. I would like some suggestions.
I am wanting to make the flowers scrappy, but I want them to have a the same fabric for the centers and leaves. That way the flowers are all different, but they still have a common fabric tying them all toghether.

I ordered this TWISTER ruler this week.
I can not wait to try it out. I saw it demonstrated at the Mount Dora Quilt Show, but they sold out of them. I think that they will make some really cute Quilted Hugs Quilts!


I am getting ready to start this quilt.

Lisa and I started buying these blocks from Joann's about 2 or 3 years ago. Obviously they don't sell them anymore, so I will have to just use the ones that I have.
I love the colors. I can't wait to get started.
AND one really good thing about them is...

They are all PRE-CUT so this should be really enjoyable to sew.
I wont have to spend any time cutting fabric.

And... I bought these at the quilt show and I was not sure if they would work they way they were demonstrated.

I was shocked that they actually mark on the fabric, VERY Smoothly and then....
You iron the fabric and the ink disappears.

They come in multiple colors!
They are made by Pilot and called FRIXON Erasable Gel Pens.
They write & erase on paper, but who knew they had a hidden talent for quilters!?!?!

ANOTHER Must Have in my Sewing Room has been....

Swan Creek Candle's
They are Soy candles and they are so fragrant.

I love the way the burn so clean and they smell so WONDERFUL!
I went with Lisa S. and bought a several Spring Scents from their Outlet store in Downtown Leesburg.
I am in LOVE!!

I pray that everyone has a HAPPY EASTER!!
