Reflection (aka WIP)

I made some huge changes to this piece. NO borders. Thanks to my friends on the Quilt Art List for your critique, and thanks to the artist with the mostest, Pamela!
I look forward to your comments on the changes I made. The bottom, reflection section, has a layer of blue tulle over the quilted/thread painted flowers. I love the gradation of this grey fabric, purchased it from my friend Anita at Beatton Way. It makes a nice background for the sunflowers. I have also included a closeup of the stitching, this piece was done with WonderFil rayon.
Now, must move on to something other than sunflowers :0

Work in Progress

I'm working on a new piece, and would really like some feedback.
It's about the light gold borders...I rather like them but a friend has suggested maybe they are too 'choppy' and I should just frame the picture with the gold border?
I think it gives the piece a more 'artistic' flare the way the borders are, If I just frame the picture it is more 'quilterly'...am I making any sense?
What do you think, I value everyone's opinion.
And look forward to your comments.

FFFC #34

I have just finished a piece for the Fast Friday Fabric Challenge. It was a lot of fun. I used the triadic color scheme of red, yellow, and blue and various hues of those colors. I hope achieved texture, the quilting doesn't show up in the picture, but her skirt looks quite puffy. The cut outs in her dress add texture, I feel and she has a string of beads.
I don't have a title, her dress does look like bird feathers and I have swans in the window ( put on with Shiva). I am open to any suggestions for a title.
