A finish, maybe and Verna blocks!

Here's the flag quilt top for my CG&G project. I don't know how I feel about it. I think it might need something more. I wanted it simple but there's just something missing. I'm thinking it looks too square for a flag? Hubby thinks it's perfect the way it is. ♥
What do you think? Should I add some applique stars? Embroider stars? Make it longer, wider? Or leave it as is?
And here's my 1st 2 blocks for Rachel's pinwheel sampler quilt along (link on my sidebar). I'm using Verna. Yummmmmmmmm!

Aren't they delicious? I can't wait to get some more Verna. I don't think I will be satisfied with just 1 quilt made from this!☺♥♥

It's lovely just the way it is, but it's always fun to play, isn't it? You might audition some applique stars just to see if you like the addition. Very nice though!

Love the pinwheeles and the flag. I think if it were me I would make it wider.

I also love the flag but I also think that you could make it a little bit wider. I also like the idea of maybe quilting some stars on it. Otherwise, it is a cute idea!

Love the Verna!

I would say wider too, but it still looks like a flag without it......It is always hard to know when to quit isnt it?

Love your pin wheels! I am waiting for my Verna to arrive, and have to decide what to do with it...and as for your flag-what about taking off the bottom off white row, and adding it on the right hand side?

I think it looks lovely!! Your pinwheels are just beautiful too.

Cute flag. I LOVE VERNA too!! I have finished one purse, have a lap quilt in mind for my mother-in-law, another purse (for ME), and a larger quilt (or two).

I like your flag~ I think the quilting will bring it to life~ stars in the blue and wavy lines along the stripes. Cute pinwheels too! ;-)

Those pinwheels remind me of Spring. Just love them. That is a great flag quilt as well but I agree that maybe it should be wider. Either way as long as you love it that is all that matters.

I like the flag - I think it's cute as it is! But, I think applique stars would be cute, too! Okay, you and Kris are mean -- tempting me to join this Pinwheel thing! I'm trying to catch up on UFO's and you girls are distracting me with those OH SO FUN BLOCKS! LOL! I'm loving it in Verna!!!
