Some things I LOVE about this quilt: the colors shine and I love all the fabrics.
What I don't like about the quilt: the border. I was trying to finish it off kinda reminiscent of the block itself. Didn't have enough of either fish batik to go all the way around. Now I wish I hadn't done it like this. Think it's the top border that doesn't work. But I sooooo love the purple fishies. Maybe I could just whack off that top border and rebind it...
Here's a quilting detail. I used 8 perle cotton and quilted freehand fans going around and around the quilt in the spiral fan. This is where they all bash together in the middle:
I actually started this quilt for my Mom, who is a fiend for shells and likes these colors. But then I got it done and couldn't quite part with it. Who knows, maybe it'll make it's way to Colorado for "storage" when we're ready for the next move.
Now I really gotta stop playing - I'm supposed to be doing insurance paperwork. yick.
