Finally decided that I would leave the quilt top the way it is without any additional embellishments. I tried to come up with a silhouette but the only one that looked real was of my son's head when he was a little boy and I don't think it was appropriate to the quilt. So its off to Denmark and I hope that my swap partner will enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it for her. She did have some likes: fall colors, primary colors, black, suitable for hanging on a wall - I think I met most of them. I certainly love the colors and I did apply a hanging sleeve on the reverse which is black as well. I could have kept going with borders and such but then it would have been too big to meet the criteria. The arbiter of quilt perfection, my son, said that he liked it the way it was but pointed out where washing the quilt had made it a little wonky. Wonky works for me.
RAIN UPDATE - So far today my little rain gauge has recorded 1.4" of rain. A day without rain is not forecast until this coming Monday. Looks like my weekend will be spent sewing or, heaven forbid, cleaning up around here.
