Finger Lakes Quilting Plan

I think I finally have the plan for quilting my Finger Lakes log cabin quilt. Last week I came up with a design I really loved, but after fretting about it for several days, I decided I wouldn't be able to quilt it because the blocks are too large for my quilting space, so I'm settling for the easier option. I'm thinking done is better as I really would like to finish this quilt by the end of the month.

This is the trellis set of pantographs designed by Karen Thompson. 
I won't be leaving the blank areas blank, I just didn't take the time to crop every block that needs to go in there for the visual plan. I'll be inserting the appropriate piece and then cropping it at the edge.

I actually created the outer border flower from elements in the block itself. I went and looked at the designer's options for a matching border and I didn't like any of them and this design fits the quilt better. I think I might also make a straight line of leaves, if I can figure out how, to use on the thin cream inner border. Maybe I can print it out and re-draw the design in a straight line and then have ProStitch Designer turn it into a pantograph. I guess I have one more puzzle to play with before I get started.
