Vintage Hand Applique Girls In The Rain

 This vintage  hand appliqued hand embroidered piece
was gifted to me and I'm pondering how to 
use it in a wall art hanging.  Should I simply
quilt it as is or add blocks around it?  Suggestions?
"Singin' In The Rain" $295
21 1/2 inches X 29 inches.

What a beauty!!! I hope you do not ad blocks.

I think the simplicity of this piece is lovely. I would not add blocks to it. Such a nice gift!

Add my vote to the "no blocks" camp. At most a nice border that picks up one of the bright primary colors, and a contrasting binding. It is such a pretty fabric

I don't know... how large is it? Do you have a perfect place to display it? Does it seem like it needs a frame which is really what a border is. Is it from the 50's, you could google it and see what people would have done when it was made. LeeAnna at not afraid of color

I agree with Leeanna. I would try some research into quilts from that era to see what a good border option would be. Something simple would set it off nicely and make it look finished. Make sure to show us what you decide!

Love it.

Oh That's so sweet! I might add a simple border to frame it but not blocks, let the panel shine!!
