A Gardener's Journal Quilting

I have just finished stippling the middle of my quilt.  There are a few flowers quilted in too. 




I am not sure what to quilt in the border.  My daughter likes this stencil.  What do you think?  Soon time to bind YIPPPEEEE!!!

I agree with your daughter. The hearts and leaves look good and it fills the border nicely. You have done a beautiful job.
